Headed East

Tuesday, November 13, 2018
We packed up the car, rounded up our pup and headed out one early morning in mid October.  We drove through hills, past a nuclear power plant, and over many rivers. We drove east as far as you can go in Tennessee, and in Tennessee that means landing in the arms of the Appalachian mountains.
I haven't been up to these mountains as much as I'd like lately.  I've felt too busy and thought it too decadent to carve the time. Being here reminds me that I can never be too busy for this and if it is decadence, then it is a decadence my soul needs.

My well begins to be refilled here.  I don't need a structure constructed by human hands to experience the spiritual.  I understand that every time I'm in the forest. Especially these forests.  I feel close to the beginning and reconnected to things that mean life for me.  I find my spirituality here.
We walked miles through rhododendron filled pathways and had our breath taken at every turn when the view would open up to show us the expanse.

 It was so good to be home.   

Where do you go to fill your creative well?  Is it a place, a book, a listening experience?  I'd love to hear from you~

End of December

 A walk through the deciduous forest in late December.  
 Intention setting
 Bird gazing
 Hand holding
 and most of all

I'll see you in the New Year.



Winter Solstice

Monday, December 22, 2014

Solstice fires burn bright on the longest night.  
We write down the things we are letting go of.
Turn them over to the flame.
We say a prayer while clasping each others hands.
Thankful for what we have.
Thankful for each other.

Happy Solstice to you all~

August has been a month of making changes for me.  In so many areas of my life.  Holding on and letting go.

One part of letting go was moving from the house that I've called home for nigh on 10 years.  The nostalgia is real.  So many things happened in that house.  It's where I discovered jewelry making and metalsmithing.  It's where I honed those skills and discovered the path to owning my own business, being my own boss.  So much growth and transformation happened there... Letting go of a path that ultimately was not right for me.  Understanding that letting go of that way and forging my own path, listening to and really understanding what my soul has always known somehow, is not the way to perdition.  

The transformation is and was an incredible journey, but something about those things, those memories and ghosts of letting go, were holding me in place.
This next chapter is full of hope, goals, wishes, dreams to be brought to fruition, and most importantly, love. The next chapter of Andewyn Jewelry promises to be full of inspiration and many new facets of expressing creatively.

I can't wait to see all that happens.
