It has been a rough season on our little island and I am trying to get my groove back. We have weathered through Hurricane Matthew s fury. 105 mph winds came our way and caused life to be interrupted. Here are a few photos of my own back yard after they removed the huge fallen trees. Wow. We were so blessed that none of these tall giants fell on our house. The island is in recovery mode but the amount of trees downed by a category 2 is unbelievable. It is thought that the heavy rains during the weeks before the storm softened the ground adding to the amount of wind felled the big pines and oaks. They came down roots and all.

Hello its me. Yes. July wow. I have been battling back pain since Jan and finally starting to get relief. I have stared for months at my creative stash unable to sit for long and do much unmotivated and unmoved. But. This weekend I plan on starting again. Finally diagnosed with SI joint inflammation. Done with PT on a med for osteoarthritis. And praying this too shall pass. Realizing what joy and healing art has been for me and to just show up is half the battle. Sometimes showing up mentally and waiting physically on the rebound to happen. It will.
pic of my desk. Piled with creative happenings. To be used this weekend!!
