lost & found

Thursday, September 18, 2014

a really important 2 hour Skype chat and wanted to doody up my background - with best loved pet & creative director

Life is painful and messed up. It gets complicated at the worst of times, and sometimes you have no idea where to go or what to do. Lots of times people just let themselves get lost, dropping into a wide open, huge abyss. But that's why we have to keep trying. We have to push through all that hurts us, work past all our memories that are haunting us. Sometimes the things that hurt us are the things that make us strongest. A life without experience, in my opinion, is no life at all. And that's why I tell everyone that, even when it hurts, never stop yourself from living. Alysha Speer

so sorry for my longer than normal absence - I feel like I am lost a bit. At a transition point in my life & it's a big one - a very big leap is about to happen. Two things I want to say today:

The first is that I know with all my being that you must feel lost to feel found, and that said lost is a constant state of being, of growth & development & change & ultimately really good things.

The second is I love that cat Oliver, that dog, cat, comforting little furry Buddha creature that he is, way more than words could ever, ever say. I am so blessed to have him on my team ;-)

  1. Lovely to have you return dear Susan, I have missed you, pleased you're alright.
    Gorgeous photos of your painting, flowers and Oliver, he is beautiful and I can see he has a comforting presence.
    I feel lost most of the time and realise that my wish for a happy relationship will not make my life complete or this loneliness go away as it is not going to happen... I have to find this peace within myself, then I will be 'found'.
    Love to you, Oliver and Les Gang.

  2. Was wondering about you, Madam. Something tells me Oliver feels the same way about you.

  3. thinking of you! .... with many tail wags + a woof for Oliver. ~moose

  4. Arrrr matey, life can be scary. Be brave and buck up. There be smoother waters once ye have passed through this storm and t' sun will shine again.
