Moving on...

It has been a difficult couple of weeks with Pandora's death but I feel like I am finally able to move on. The first few days I could not come back into my art room without crying and seeing her in my arms but that is passing and I am feeling the need to create again. And with Winter Break coming up in a couple of weeks I have a lot of things to think about...

The thing that has been on my mind the last few days is creating another Word for the Year. I did it last year (see THIS post) and it was nice to think about throughout the year. I had it glued to my work table at school and several times when I was mad at the kids I would see it and work on letting it go. I wanted to make a word this year that built on that idea. I thought about what I did when I "released" and it was all about breathing. And now that I am back to doing more yoga practice I find the reminders to "breathe" coming fast and furious from all angles. And wouldn't ya know it, conscious breathing is still hard for me (to remember mid-asana or when I am mad). I need more work on that one.

So I decided for 2014 my word would be BREATHE.

  1. I've not got into the word for the year thing. Glad you found one that works for you, and that you're getting back into the studio. Make gelli prints if nothing else. That's always a good ice breaker.

    1. Thanks so much Mary Ann. I do hope she and Buck Moss are romping, and rolling around in the dirt, one of Pandora's favorite things when I let her go outside.

  3. So sorry to hear about Pandora, Rhonda. A good long life doesn't make the absence go any easier, does it? The longest one of my cats made it was 16 years so your kitty beat the odds! Maybe making pictures of her would help - one quilted? ;)

    1. Thanks Kathryn... not sure if I could do her justice in a quilted piece, maybe a drawing or something... I have a lot of photos of her. Thanks for stopping by.
