My work in Pushkar is work of the Heart, much like the work I do here, with a slight different tinge and essence.
One thing I know, I cannot do the one without the other.
They both amalgamate in such a beautiful sacred space where the one fills the other, a symbiosis I guess.
If I didn't walk with my heart wide open to the receiving as I did, still do and always will, I would not have experience those blessings, bit by bit.
They trickle in and over me every day.
And I cannot begin to explain how it feels to support a small hand full of peeps there, to spend time in the studios or tiny workshops, often no bigger than a single dusty bedroom 🙏
It is not all joy all the time.
Sometimes stock gets lost, sometimes people don't deliver what they promise to supply, and then I'm not even talking about deadlines.
They are non existent.
There is a whole lot going on behind the scenes of a very small business.
I am learning more and more that trust will always go both ways, NO MATTER WHAT, and I am leaning into that knowing ❤
I am blessed enough to spend a lot of wonderful moments in the studios, with mutual respect, listening ears, hands on the textiles, chai shares, with a willingness from all directions to do the work, then accepting that I have to take my time in doing so, Indian pace, and most importantly, connecting with people I care deeply about.
THIS WORK IS MY BLISS!
It's days like these, like today, the end of a heavenly Tuesday when I exhale absolutely EVERYTHING.
I am exhausted from the high level of commitment as well as excitement, as I am slowing myself down, deliberately.
I am grateful for the crew who support me, daily!!
I just love you so much.
You know your names, near and very far ❤ (Pushkar Jan 2019)
