I just pulled a stack of much loved books from my shelf.
As I contemplate the stack I notice there’s a visual arts book. Art for me is joy and inspiration. When we are inspired, we tend to create our own form of art.
Also in the stack are a couple of writing books. Whether a person is a “writer” or not, there’s a narrative we form that would be the story of our life if it were told. Or written down.
A couple of books about wellness make sense. Certainly I’ve been keen to witness and support healing. We all have a healing journey of some sort that is a part of our personal story. And often this journey expands our wisdom.
Which leads to spiritual contemplation, and that subject appears in the stack along with book about creating beauty at home. And finally, a sweet little primer about bees; the future for me and most every bite of plant food either of us will ever eat.
As I consider what I chose and the inner urges that prompted me, I realize each book represents little patch of ground on my current path.
There’s an art to transforming, and to creating a life that is shiny new and also informed by the past. My husband, the beekeeper, and I are building a home on acreage up north near the Red River and will be making a life together that includes beekeeping, farming, wellness and contemplation. And his expertise in tech to aide all of our endeavors.
A new website/blog will offer a place for us to connect. I’ll write about the BeeKeeping Life, Wellness and other subjects I hope you’ll enjoy! I’m excited about it, and I hope you’ll find it helpful.
And I’ll be whipping up some things to add to health and home. I’ll make those available to you on the new site as we go. We hope to offer a few different workshops that all support health and happiness.
And as the spirit needs nurtured, I plan to include food for thought to encourage you in finding a good, earthy, happy, healthy calm balance. There will be plenty of fun too – we need to remember that joy is the best medicine, and it’s good simply for it’s own sake.
Mostly, I hope this new chapter will create a space of hospitality. Whether it’s online or in person, I hope to extend to you a feeling of welcome where you can find a little healing, a little joy, and the calm of nature.
In the mean time, it’s time to turn the page and get started. So I’ve decided to close the practice in Grapevine.
But I’m not gone entirely.
As we prepare for our move, I’ll be here communicating with you and hopefully, offering some things of help and use.
It’s been wonderful being in practice in Grapevine, since 2004. I’ve learned, laughed, cried, and been thrilled witnessing healing for this community. It’s been my privilege to serve. And now I must go and offer myself to a sort of different story that includes some chapters on chickens, herbs, flower remedies, beekeeping, barn cats, and so forth!
