I think I'm going to enter summer mode a tiny bit early and take a vacation from the blog. My time here is always wonderful, and amazingly worthwhile, but it is time. And time feels very precious to me right now.
In just over a week the Farmers Market begins and I will be there every other week for the entire season with my upcycled wares (is repurposed out?). Please be sure to visit this market if you are in eastern Connecticut over the summer. This dedicated group really amazes me.
Sewing. There will be a lot of time spent sewing. Which is okay, but I must admit that my favorite part of my work is definitely the hunt for various fabrics and the bringing the vision to life of each item. I'm told I have a pretty good eye for combining color and fabrics, I just know it's my favorite part of the process. The actual sewing part? That's kind of like housekeeping to me, necessary and worthwhile... but not particulary juicy.
Yoga. Now that's juicy. And something I'm trying to figure out how to spend even more time doing. I sense some deeper aspects of yoga are waiting for me on the horizon, ready to enter my practice... but I need to slow down and clear some head space to open up to it. Adam and I have talked a lot about this and because he is so freaking supportive of my whirly, twirly ways - he thinks I should attend a Five Day Yoga Retreat in September. I really hope the scheduling works out for my family. This retreat is intentionally not part of my advanced certification program, it's just yoga. Deep, experiential yoga. Like I told my teacher the other day, I don't need a teacher training right now, I need a Heather training.
You know what else I want to do this summer? Besides return to the mountains and trails? I want to go to more concerts. There's been a really lame gap in our concert attendance the last couple of years and I have no good excuse. So I must work on that too. Anything great coming to New England that I should know about?
Here is the thing, I'm not completely vanishing here. There is no need for that. Let's just say from here on out, until further notice, I'll be posting about once a week. And those posts might be mellow, simple and light, like summertime... ooh, makes me think of Janis. Now that would have been a summer concert...
