Taking The Plunge

Between a vacation to Florida, a stack of orders thanks to that print feature, another show to get ready for this weekend, and a class to prepare for, I am swamped. I kinda feel like the little one on the front of this log ride. Not even trying to hide the sheer terror of it all--teeth clenched, but going for it with my eyes wide open. Perhaps instead, I should shout out my battle cry, like "A" did. But then again, I could always just close my eyes and grasp on for dear life waiting for whatever happens to happen, like my other girl did. I don't know.

Whichever way I decide to handle it, I just wanted to say I'll be absent from this space, and from making the blog rounds, for about a week, as I take the plunge and catch up on my current roller coaster ride.

  9. Oh how I can really relate to where you are right now. Here's a quote I want to share with you from Neale Donald Walsch: " Nothing is ever solved or created by standing still. Movement is the process of the universe. So Move. Do something. Anything. But do not stand still."
    It sounds like you'll be doing a lot of moving. Anything at all will take those fear pangs away. I can hardly wait to hear all about it.
    I'll be thinking of you.
