trying to get the hang of this thing

I guess I feel that it is in my best interests to be more active with website, blog, myspace etc… activities. Previously I’ve been reluctant to spend too much time sitting on my arse at the computer when I could and should be sitting at my cello or at the torch. This year I’m off to a positive start in my attitude about these things. I’m sure it will get easier if I just keep at it.

Out with the old and in with the new…


2007 has been particularly¬†challenging for me, not all in a bad way but really making me work on so many different levels. I performed my first solo gigs in ages. It was scary and fun and now I realize I have to do it some more. My sister was deployed to Iraq, I want this war over yesterday…

There’s been a pile up of annoying little things. My car needs work, my dryer died. There’s more that I could gripe about but at the same time I feel grateful for the blessings and good life I lead, all of my incredible friends and my dear husband.
I’ve been making some cool beads lately that many people don’t get to see unless they happen to see me at a bead show. Here is a picture of some recent large hollow beads. They were inspired by microbes or ameoba like things. I’m no scientist but I appreciate things seen under a microscope or by telescope. These beads are large but light so they are easy to wear on a cord or to use in any way you might imagine.
Now that I have this blog page set up where it’s easy for me to post, the world may be hearing from me a little more often, at least that’s my plan.
Wishing you a healthy, prosperous, successful and most of all, peace in the new year!
