Keeping the Mundane Out of My Ballet
I have a desire to change all that. I don't know why I am chomping at the bit to stir things up. Perhaps it is all part and parcel to my edit and purge sweep to narrow the burden of stuff' to a pleasurable level. 'Simplify, simplify, simplify' - Thoreau.
I was going through several of my craft drawers and rather than editing, I found myself reminiscing (must be that autumn thing). Running my hand over needlepoint stitched many moons ago, discovering cards of antique buttons collected in a former life and treasures wrought with sweet memories I am loathe to discard tugged at my melancholy heart.
It seems that I want freshness in my life without letting go of the comforts which include some of the usual habits. Like a vase of fresh flowers from the garden's late season offerings, I crave a blend of old and new, comfort and adventure.
