Spring is about change, and it is rippling into our lives. Good friends are moving out and new friends are moving in.
My studio has been the lucky recipient of some new furniture pieces, but now my supplies are piled even higher to accommodate the shift.
The condo has holes in the ceiling due to insulating of sweating pipes and the furniture is all moved around to make room for the workmen. At some point the drywall guy will come and be disruptive, but he'll repair the moldy walls as well.
The husband has a new job, closer to home which saves on both gas and energy (the human kind), but he now has a new mountain of a learning curve to ascend.
It's so hard to be OK with a state of flux, to adapt, to accept change. It goes against the grain. I have heard it is better to relax the muscles rather then stiffen and brace for the blow. I've never been very good at relaxing, but I will try not to resist the tide, the weather, the inevitable. I will just continue to make little felty things and in that way perhaps comfort myself and, hopefully, others.
