Well, it's been quite a full almost three months since my last post. Sorry for the gap. Starting a new career while trying to get a mountain cabin compound back in order after leaving it for a year and a half has been something. And in the midst of all of that, my finest friend and companion vanished. Honeybear, you expanded my heart and soothed my soul more than I can express, and I hope you have peace, love and lots of half & half wherever you are now.
Getting the career going has been a lot of fun. In addition to working at the cabin, I was practicing in Clarkesville (a small town about 20 miles from me) in a wellness center with Network Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy and Hypnotherapy (along with Qi Gong and Yoga classes), and that was a nice re-entry to the mountains and an opportunity to meet some folks in a community other than my own. Unfortunately the office space was too small for me, so I consolidated my practice to my home office in the log cabin. I just typed "unfortunately," but actually I rather think it was fortunate. Driving back and forth all the time and carrying my table around was a bit of a drag, and further developing my practice in the log cabin has been really sweet, in so many ways. My clients have been wonderful - and they keep coming back, which is most reassuring - and the cabin has always liked visitors, so it's happy too. Also, at this point in my life, it feels really right to be growing into both my space and my work in a new way, and honoring the process of that. Spending more time here, and a different quality of time, has been sort of a ripening. I haven't forgotten the art. I have been enjoying the iPhone camera along and along, with some fun photographing a forest cathedral in the Smokies on a camping trip, the mighty Chattooga, of course, some sunrises out at the lake and continued lily photos around my pond here in Moonfrog Hollow...
Always, the water...
This particular trip to the river, I noticed how the water and stone mimic each other - in these photos I can see how they run right together, almost indistinctly. This fascinates me - that water and stone can so mimic each other and appear as one...
Of course the contrast of soft water and hard rock is somehow reassuring...
And if you live in the mountains, you know how amazing almost everything that blooms has been this year. I have never seen such prolifically beautiful blooms in my life as I have this year - these rhododendrons are a prime example - they just go on and on, and so paper white...
And of course, good, quality time in the woods with special friends needs no further explanation, and I am grateful for these folks who are even willing to follow me bushwhacking into uncharted territories...
