No Words

I'm not feeling it these days. I know I should, but I just don't feel like writing. It's been an entire month since my last post and lots of potential blog material to write about but....I don't know. I've even started 2 or 3 different posts but none of them have made it to publish. I know I'm not the only one to feel this way, am I? I can't be the only one that has struggled with the desire/pressure to fill a page but no words to fill it? It's not a bad place that I find myself in, not at all. More like a place of waiting, of holding back, until the momentum shifts and the words once again take center stage. But for now my life takes a different path...

During the last month, I've registered my baby girl for kindergarten and my "baby" boy for junior high. I've watched my emotions run the gamut from elation to heartbreak as my children spread their wings to fly and I resist the urge to @#&*! it all up! I've gone to Portland, Oregon and fallen in love with my husband, again, and attended a soldering workshop with Sally Jean Alexander. I've been at the gym, in the garden, and in the studio more than ever and this truly makes my heart happy. So as you can see it's not like I don't have a few things to write about. I just haven't felt like sitting down and putting the words out there.

So for today, I leave you with the only visuals that I have captured (and uploaded) over the last few weeks. Simply put, it is what keeps me centered and grounded and oftentimes at a loss for words.

Have a wonderful week! XOXXO

I hear you Molly, and I'm throwing you a big hug! It is a strange time of life when you're dealing with the feelings of "losing" your babies. I'm struggling with the same emotions, with my oldest graduating from High School. I ask myself "How did we get here so fast?" and "Am I that old already?"
Anyway, I look forward to hearing all about the great things you've been involved with. And hang in there, you are not alone with your feelings!
Take care,

Well for what it's worth I think this post ... your words and your photos are lovely. Thanks for sharing your heart and your art. {I'm loving those sweet hearts with the pinked edges and simple sweet words).

You are living reason to apologize for it! You will write more when you need to.

As long as your heart is happy...who needs words?

I have found that keeping a blog is hard work. We want to please our readers and sometimes we have cycles where we don't have it in us. The truth is as a blogging community we understand these struggles. We still come back knowing that a great post is on it's way.
You have a lovely blog.

Molly you are putting too much pressure on yourself. Technology should work for you and not work you. My daughter is heading to Kindergarten in the fall as well. It is a sweet age 5...but a bit bittersweet to see her go off to school. Enjoy your summer, family and creative work.
