Hello Saturday. Hello friends. Hello beautiful warm new fall day.

For those of you concerned or worried about me, Thank You ! I am fine ... we are fine.

Busy with lots more of that secret (for now) kind of art/illustration work, commitments & deadlines and finally, finally wrapping my head around moving. I'm beginning to really feel excitement about having this amazing opportunity to make a fresh start & to begin again. To simplify my life as much as possible. To make new friends, to walk new places, to smell the salt air of the Atlantic ocean. To join a new library, to paint new walls, to purge and de-clutter. To organize. To really grow my creative business. To pare down my life to the very basics & to live as sparely as I can manage.

I'm filled with gratitude for the chance to be beginning again.

Recreate your life, always, always. 
Remove the stones, plant rose bushes and make sweets. 
Begin again.

  1. So glad you are all OK and busy with your projects. Lovely images of flowers and Miss Winnie as always dear Susan, so good to see the young people of Pugwash embracing peace as many places in the world are in such a mess and becoming very dangerous at the moment.
    love to all
    xoxoxo ♡

  2. I love your blog - you take the most beautiful photos!

  3. So excited and happy for you. Have you decided where you're headed yet ?

  4. I need to keep reading why you'd want to start again elsewhere when you seemed to have created such a lovely home where you were and how well you were doing there. I'm sure this new move will be good for you and well thoughts/felt out--I just need to grasp it all myself. Well done, you brave soul! :)
