I've been reading/listening to The Witch of Portobello for the past few days. At first I didn't know if I would make it through it based on the first CD (1 of 7), but I kept on with it since the radio annoys me and we aren't set to go to the library again for a few days....anyway....a couple of things I have started thinking about. Being quiet. Putting myself into a single artistic task that will allow me to separate my crazy life from my spiritual being. I used to do stuff such as cross-stitch or quilting, but I haven't done that in a while for 2 reasons. They are 3 1/2 years and 11 months old. On another note, I've also wanted to find something to hold onto to further develop my attachment to my faith choice. I like chalices. I want chalices around to develop the symbols meaning in my life. So, I want chalices and I need a creative outlet that is small, quick, yet requires concentration.
Today, I made a few chalice pendants from wire and glass beads. They're not great, but I feel better. Maybe I’ll do more of them and give them as gifts to special UUs in my life. Maybe I’ll put them in a box somewhere. My son seemed to like them. Maybe I’ll make a full necklace for him and let him enjoy something his mommy made. Who knows?
