This is a super short blog post (but don't I ALWAYS say that??) to say "I'm back from Tucson!"
I'm exhausted. I'm happy. It was a cuh-ray-zee show full of ups and downs, but mostly ups. I spent a fantastic 8 days with a very good friend and I realized how much I really miss her shining face in my life every week!!! (Alex, you really DO need to win the lottery...then you could move back to Atlanta AND you'd have bunches of money to spend in Tucson on silver!)
I also was reminded that what I do has value.... in all sorts of ways. I'm not going to tell the long stories here (for now, anyways) but I've been sharing them with other people and the big take-home from the trip was that I was RIGHT where I needed to be RIGHT when I needed to be there.
I had seriously considered giving up on Tucson as a venue for me. I've changed my mind. I will be back there next year. Things will be a bit different than they were the last few years, but I will be back and I will be teaching again AND I will be spending yet another birthday in Arizona.
... but for now, I'm off to work! I have some beading to do today... back to the torch tomorrow!
tiny blah blah blah...
coffee - Starbucks FREE coffee on your birthday coupon! YAY!
music - it's going to be a movie on Netflix.com, but I'm not sure which. Probably some sort of documentary that I don't have to watch closely since I'll be designing and beading.
Have a great day!!
