Verbs are doing words

Growing - an avocado from a seed. Pit? Whatever. From a smooth egg-like seed to cracking open like Monkey's stone egg to reveal a determined little tendril that just keeps on growing. 

Gifting - a crochet baby blanket to my gorgeous cousin who will soon have a little Christmas baby!

Hearing - C.W. Stoneking, just about the coolest olde style feller I ever did hear. Get onto his music, it's audible timetravel. And his personal story is kinda interesting too.

We're all (g)in this together

Ok, so it's been quiet around here lately.

I've missed contacting artists and coming up with new photos to share, but things have been a little cuckoo all up in here.

Did I mention I have two kids?

Apart from that reliable madness, my job is kinda (not really) crazy, and I work pretty long days. Don't we all, I hear you ask? Yeaaaaahhhhhhh.

My sister's been sick too. Anybody who knows me knows how much I freaking love my sis, and the recent flare-up of her MS symptoms gave the whole family cause for worry. But you know what? She's being treated with some wickedly strong medicine, and handling it like a pro. I couldn't be more proud of her valour. On the list of women I want to be like when I grow up... Kirsty's number 1.

Under this glowering storm of concern and weariness, when I'm in a foul mood and I feel the urge to take it out on others, I seek to remind myself of this:

We are all made of the same stuff and WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

And then I have a gin and tonic.
