more and more
i do something i’m sure about in the moment
then doubt myself afterwards.
when emotional buyer’s remorse sets in.
when i feel overly exposed.
once i just lived with the doubt and the second-guessings,
the Sweet Spirit of Surprise
seems to send me nods and whisperings of support.
last week I posted about
some rough spots in the road.
i opened my heart to you
telling you something
that we’ve talked about
around our table,
but never as openly as on a blog post,
and within minutes,
your loving support came pouring in
i came across
and the next day
i feel better
but not woohoo-great yet.
we met with surgeon #1 today
to talk about removing the thyroid.

is a professional actor and singer
and of course there’s the vitamin d
i’ll keep you posted.

while i wrap the support of your outpouring
of concern, love, and information around me,

with its ins and outs.
work on In Our Own Language 3 has begun in earnest.
it’s slow going.
each of nancy’s drawings takes about 1.5 hours to stitch.
it doesn’t look like it should take that long,
but it does.
there are 271 drawings in set 3.

i’ve been stitching nancy’s drawings since june 2012
and i’m still loving and learning with every single stitch.
Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
