the beach is back 2

Friday, April 18, 2014

Just back from my morning power walk on the beach, the ice is now officially gone & sweet Bee leaves today & I'll miss her

Be steady and well-ordered in your life 
so that you can be fierce and original in your work.

Gustave Flaubert

Working non-stop a go-go, almost*, on the project, ya know the one I mentioned a week or so ago, the big (literally - it's 12' x 5'), very scary, extremely thrilling, dreamy, jagged steep mountain project.

*I am making sure I take the time every day to have R & R breaks (ritual and rejuvenation, rest and relaxation, recharging & reminders). Reminding myself - that I can do this, that I do deserve this amazing creative opportunity, that I will do my best, I always do ... & finally, reminding myself that there's a pretty darn good chance that I'm gonna kick ass ;-)

I couldn't resist - I was a mad, crazed teenaged Elton John fan, he was the soundtrack of my youth -  from fav album Caribou


  1. I love Elton too.

    Those photos are not from today, right ? Too bitchin' cold.

    When is the big reveal ?

  2. Winter weary my dear ??

    These photos are from Wed/Thurs but Bee and I did walk on the beach today and it was a little bitchin' cold - but it wasn't too bad. Fleece head band & layers the secret to our success.

    Big reveal won't be 'til end of May for this current project and even later reveal for the big Susan Black home decor & gift collection (100+ products ;-) summer release.

    Hope the bunny found you, he did not find me - pas de chocolate here (sad face) xoxo S + gang

  3. Wonderful photos, it is good to see that the ice has melted and your beach is back.
    I love the photo of the birds all sitting in the tree and sweet Bee of course.
    Sorry she has to leave and you will miss her.
    Happy Easter to all dear Susan!
    love, Dianne
