. A Beginning
Last year was a difficult year. It was a year that tested me but one that also made me stronger, with thanks of course to the amazing support of my family, friends and the community I found here. Thank you.
With this strength has come a desire to make - to find a use my hands again.
Recently the act of making, or perhaps getting lost in the process of learning how to make again has given me an opportunity to slow down, to focus my mind.
Of course my ability and skill level do not always match the ideas I have - I am learning and I am learning not to be frustrated by this part of the process, something I have found very difficult in the past.
Encouraged by a friends post I have come to realise that in my haste to reach where I wanted to be I was undervaluing the importance of these early stages.
While I will not profess to always know the destination, I can perhaps begin to enjoy the journey.
