oh dear lord– this whole living from a place of love and light sometimes sounds a whole lot easier in theory than it actually feels in practice. I think my astrologer needs to revisit my chart because this is what I read heading into the month of May “what a divine month for you! After it is over you may ask, “Why can’t every month be this special?” and all I can tell you is, please god– get me through this perfect storm.
Which is not to say there haven’t been supremely wonderful, beautiful experiences tucked in the corners of my days– because I assure you, there have been. And, as you know me only too well– that is what I am going to share with you here.
Yes, I could tell a different story– one of frustration, discouragement and heartache. Yes, I could totally rail to the heavens, shaking my fists at all the challenges I have been dealing with of late– and undoubtedly receive your sweet condolences– but that crap has taken all the time and attention from me it’s gonna get. I am not giving it one more bit of my life energy– instead, I will tell you I did a quick trip down to Athens, Georgia a few days ago and got to spend the day with this loveliest woman: Rinne Allen.
Yes ma’am. How lucky am I? If you’re gonna explore Athens, there’s no better tour guide than this woman (seeing as she was born and raised there) and if you want to get a direct infusion of creative mojo into your heart– well, just step into her studio.
I have never felt the limitations of my ability to take a picture more strongly than I did in her studio. There was no way I could possibly capture the magic and vibe and feel– so please know these lame-o snapshots don’t even begin to tell the story, they don’t even provide the table of contents– her space is pure art. The studio space itself is pure art.
Anyway– I am gushing. Loved Athens– look forward to the time I can spend more days there in a more leisurely fashion– but wanted to pop in and say HEY Y’ALL to you all since I have been so very absent here of late– but there it is–
I know I am crap at the relationship building thing of blogland– but you need to know that I love that you are here with me. Love the support and lovenotes you send me– you make a difference in my life. Please know that–
