Doorways

I stumbled across this old building while roaming Point Reyes Station last weekend and saw not a tear down but a reinvention. A new life, new purpose emerging from the crumbly bits. Life feels a lot like that lately. Maybe it’s Spring. Maybe it’s the desire, among so many to-dos and deadlines that I can barely see straight, to create things that have meaning. To find a way to balance the flow of corporate work that is financially rewarding with the creative work that is soul-satisfying.

As I search, I seek inspiration, snatching precious minutes from the day to wander blogland. I am always rewarded with a visual, an idea or a quote that feeds my spirit, giving me renewed purpose. Favorites this week:

:: shim + sons from whom I’ve adopted the :: (or googlies as Sage calls them) and excitedly took part in the grand opening of The Shoppe.

:: 3191 is my Rx for calm. I go there daily for visual inspiration. This week, May 3 was my favorite.

:: Ali Edwards has been talking a lot about balance on her blog. Taking a life temperature makes so much sense to me.

:: Sage on the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Computer captures reinvention in gorgeous, mouth-filling language, and Sage herself who always saves my bacon when my words threaten to unravel on the page.

:: And that Martha. In blog-hopping, I found out that Martha has a new art + craft line. Of course she does! It’s really very clever merchandising … you can buy at Michael’s or online (more selection). And the design is oh-so-appealing.

As Monday morning draws near, I am again optimistic that I can keep many balls in the air, remain gracious when clients are dancing on my last nerve, and pay attention to the little, beautiful moments that make up daily life.

    Oh, that Martha! That’s just what I said.

    I blew into Michael’s the other night to get the pretty yarn for Samantha’s toy tags and saw her crafts line. “Ooooooo,” I said, but I didn’t have time to stop.

    I saw it again today in the Michael’s Sunday paper flyer.

    Looks like fun stuff!

    Happy last weekend moments!

    What a photo! And what a beautiful observation about the lens you bring to the crumbling bits! I’m honored to be a part of the reinvention conversation!
