A Very Merry Christmas to All

Sadness hits the Forest

As some of you know I am a very happy person...Even when I'm not feeling it, I can usually project it simply because I like to see people smile.
I've not been able to do that these last few days...all I feel is the need to cry. So why would I even post you ask? Trust me, I thought about it...but the only way I know to heal, it to try and get back into my daily routine.
This Blog is a part of what I do that I enjoy.
On Wed. August 24, 2011 I had to say good-bye to a beloved and cherished friend. My horse EMMA..
The details aren't important unless you're a horse person. Whats important to me is that she went peacefully and surrounded by love. She is out of pain but she left a void in my heart and took a tiny piece of me with her. When you treat your pets like children, like family, you have to expect this feeling of loss.
I am so blessed with the most understanding and supportive of friends...Not sure I would have been able to even come this far, had I not had the comforting words of so many.... I thank you  all (and you know who you are) for being there when I needed you most.
I've sat here looking around my studio (or the mess I call my studio) and while I know it needs to be cleaned and organized, all I want to do is play. I want to create something. I think my mind is hungry to dwell on something creative and less heart breaking...So who knows what I'll come up with .
My children live on Long Island. My daughter in a  flood zone (near the ocean) where evacuation is Mandatory and my son in Nassau County, the direct HIT area. Needless to say I am worried about all.
We are expecting some hard winds and rain from the event even up here in the mountain.
I pray Irene blows out to sea before she even sees Long Island.... See how cathartic writing is? All of a sudden there is a lot more then my grief to be concerned about.
Oh and then there are the fairies and such...Oh my, even a light breeze catches their wings and turns them up side down....You really didn't think I'd sign off without at least trying to make you smile?

My Angel Emma

  1. Hi Sweetie,

    Please accept my condolences on the passing of your beloved horse Emma. I know you really care about all your animals and you work really hard to keep them feed, safe and loved!
    Hope Irene didn't cause any damage in your area. I was praying for YOU and YOURS and EVERYONE ON THE EAST COAST.
    Lots of Healing hugs!
