What a Mess


Scroll through the pictures below---





Now, do you remember the warning ticket I got on the way to Pinetop?
The ticket that convinced me I needed to subtract something from each day instead of adding something else?
I don't want another warning--
I don't! 
BUT
I am having a hard time slowing down.
My brain is looking pretty much like the above pictures of my packaging!
I am working on five different packaging items while down in the valley this time.
I am reeling with things to blog about and yet, at the same time, trying to figure out how to blog about them! How to say them!
When I am in the valley my brain is filled with activity. 
My friends are here.
My dad is here.
Classes are here.
Clients are here.
My former life is here.
Heat is here!
Ah- which is one of the reasons I love having a Pinetop home. 
For the rest of this week I am BUSY, BUSY, BUSY.
My brain is BUSY, BUSY BUSY
arranging the ins and the outs of subjects such as
conflict
 family
friends
art
business
recreation
philosophy
 contemplating, figuring out, sharing, shouting, and quietly wishing I had the words to  quickly jot down everything I want my brain to organize into neat little packages tied up in the grocery store twine of the days of old. That twine somehow represents strong, organized, stability to me.

Every week or two, it seems I discover another person, of which I was unaware, is reading my blog.
Yesterday this happened again and I was very touched. Upon taking my father out to supper last night he handed me a card he had forgotten to give me. More memories flooded back, more things of which to blog--- more , more, more. For now I will just quietly say
 Thank You
to each of you for caring.
 I hope to respond more personally in the future.
I
HOPE
to make this mess into something in which beauty is more recognizable.
I
HOPE!

All of your creations end in beauty CeCe. I have no doubt this "mess" will do exactly that.
