Turn Around Here

I am at an impasse... As I have mentioned in some of my postings my mother is fighting cancer. On St. Pat's Day, we had to go to the hospital and were officially placed in hospice care. These few weeks have been some of the hardest and most rewarding of my life. She is wonderful and yet is still my mother. My work has changed to caring for her most of the time... this brings both amazing and frustrating experiences. My mom is not ready to leave this planet and is fighting with every inch of her core to stay. And I find myself a part of her revolution in beating back death to my deepest core. Her docotor said that she has surprised him through the whole process. I am beyond blown away. I guess the best part of this all is my family and friends could not be any more thoughtful and supportive.
As for the studio, I am waiting to hear if I am able to secure a location for the scavenger hunt. And I am excited to say that I will be accepting a scholarship for Penland School of Crafts. It is a bright light. I hope to sit here for a moment and then turn around...

Last Months Blue Moon

After midnight
Out in the moonlight."

Where's that Confounded Bridge?

Coming into Coos Bay, OR

Spring has sprung

Hellebores are blooming already?

Sending Love

From me to you...
