I can hardly believe it is mid August already. This summer has flown by at an astonishing pace. I'm just finishing up a few pieces for the Downtown Art Market this weekend and then I've got an entire month, yes one whole month, when I don't have to meet any deadlines except of my own making. I can not begin to tell you how good that feels. Not having to get in the car and drive more than 5 minutes feels pretty darned good too. The very best part of all is that I've got all this time to follow up on ideas that have been accumulating in my mind and as sketches on scraps of paper. Except for making that star fish necklace, I definitely feel myself moving into an autumn mood. Now if the weather would just cooperate and drop those temperatures below 90F. Actually, I'd be happy with below 80F.
On the wedding front, plans are just falling into place like magic. We have a beautiful location, we have the dress, and now we have the minister who coincidentally meditates daily in the botanical gardens where the wedding is going to be held. I'm not really much given to signs, portents, and omens, but when things come together as effortlessly as this wedding has, I just have to feel like it is something that is meant to be. It's only a little over a month away. I can hardly wait to see my son home again, even if it's only for a month. I can hardly wait to see him together again with Tammy.
