Packing it up now

Thought of day....
I chatted to an old acquaintance yesterday as we shopped
It was about my returning to Cohuna
She said 
"You come & Go Barb" ( in a really lovely accepting way )
"Yes", I replied 
" Like the tide..I come in & I go out again "

That gave me a wonderful label for how I have lived the past what 16 years.....

I am rejuvenated with change....
I get restless in a way I find hard to describe
I return to the ancestral lands to 
recharge …..reinvigorate.....
&
 I accept that....
********

The sum of my Christmas....is below

The trees but one have been stripped of decorations & lights & here the berries are assembled.




In the shelves on my desk I have sort of placed things I like....
odd assortment....
Gives me pleasure & that I reckon is important.

Today 
I have been adding to the drawings I have scribbled the last few days...

Trying to have discipline in the selections for the coming year...

I love this down time ….
I also love the thinking time I get...
what do I want to do next...???


Clarity of a sort comes
 as the Santas snooze in the boxes waiting for a swift decision from me...

I am leaning towards the Xmas  & Everyday buttons sets.....
as I have the most fun assembling those !
and 
new Santas for decorations & A button have been drawn....
Along with some other things !
