The still point of the turning world

It's been crazy busy here, considering we haven't really left the house much!

I've been working on a whole load of scribbles for sterling silver jewellery, tweaking all manner of bits and pieces on this 'ere website, and taking enquiries for pendants, face coverings, earrings. The first giclee prints have gone down a storm. My head is a giddy swarm of project ideas. And sometimes, the most productive thing you can do is:

Stop. Get the kettle on. Listen to the birds. Write it all down. And breathe.

I like to read Thích Nhất Hạnh.

"Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes."

What a gift to the world that man is.

So now I'm going to tidy up a little, rest a little, and remember how much there is to be happy about.
