These many, many months have taken TONS of courage. I shall, however, with all my processing of this ponderous grief, start to post again. Through it all, I have been working on the Serenity Shelf—through all the pain of the loss of My Light. My Life. My Ike. Tears . . . whatever can I say? The Trusting / Surrender tenet has taken more time than I ever could have imagined. I continue to jab away at it, for it has become my current pet tenet. I am honoring all the time that this work takes. Honoring Ike.
The sweet satisfaction of seeing all sides of courage.
The courage tenant is almost complete. Always a few more jabs with the felting needle refines to the point of, “okay, I’m satisfied with this one.”
Flip side of serenity – aahhhh! (Not quite finished yet – but you get the idea.)
As serene as strawberry pie; that’s serenity.

Being a native of York County, I decided to enter the York Art Association 43rd Annual Open Juried Exhibit; Oct. 6 – Nov. 2. The Pencil Boy group was accepted and I was just notified today that I was awarded 3rd place ($300) in the show. It is nice to get the positive affirmation on the work every so often.
