I am here.
I have to say that winter in Florida has been the best gift ever !
I recommend sunshine and warmth to all people who suffer with depression and seasonal mood disorders.
I wish I could give it as gift to all of my loved ones who hate winter.
I do have a guest room to share !
I still have my hard days, but being in a place where it is green, warm, sunny and that has no snow
has made a huge difference in how deep I go into a funky mood.
I am working on finding friends near by to play with.
I have a new tribe of incredible hearts in Melbourne, FL, which is about two hours away.
In fact, I will be teaching eucalyptus eco-dyeing and some other mixed media classes at my new friend, Sherri's art studio, Art More Place.
But here on my western coast, I haven't really met any friends yet.
It is on the to do list/must have because I do have days where I am very lonely and miss my peeps a lot.
I have been rooting myself in my new studio slowly too.
Little altars and inspiration from gifties from friends make it feel more like home,
The screened in back lanai is lovely in the afternoons and into the sunset hours on warmer days.
The animals can all join me out there, even my indoor kitties !
That is where I stitch quite often, listening to audio books or tunes and feeling so very blessed for the place I live in.
This Florida life is a good thing for this Rock Fairy girl.
I am so very grateful !
