Today- after long weeks of news, an election, worry and concern for all those in the path of Sandy, I've lifted my head and picked up my camera. The studio is coming along. I've been slowing working on mudding, painting, and now CLEANING UP. I hope to build some shelves and put up tables within the next week- and then- finally- I'll move in. All this seems so small and unimportant. Like everyone else, I've been hearing the stories from loved ones and the news, who were flooded or left without power for so very long. So my little "clean up" seems so... well, clean. Nothing ruined, nothing lost, just a whole lot of space gained and a new happy place carved out in my little world. I'm looking forward to this move, but clearly it's got me thinking as so many things do these days, about how very lucky I am.
Thinking of all of you out there- hoping you and your families are save, dry and warm! And as for the election! I had to wait in line for 2 hours in 40F weather with my babe in arms... but as always I loved it. I'm a bit of a political nut- so I hope all those who could vote did!
