Instead of writing brilliant musings, I have been devoting myself almost entirely, in a somewhat slave-like fashion, to other creative urges like candle-making. You would think it would be a simple little task, just melt some wax and pour it into a jar with a wick. Silly you..... Noooo, there have to be oils, crystals, incantations, labels, photographs and fonts, phases of the moon, and the urge to create and time in which to create, all in perfect alignment for the candle making to occur. And so you see the sacrifice. On Friday, I sacrificed breakfast, a shower, a nap, lunch in a seated position, my appearance, a tidy house, made beds, and my afternoon coffee to create 22 scented soy wax candles with the themes, COSMIC CONNECTION, WINTER SOLSTICE, MOTHER EARTH, DRIFTWOOD AND SUMMER SOLSTICE. They all contain gemstones and they will all require specific labels and descriptions. Ugghhh.
If I could turn the ideas off, I would, but they come to me during meditation or during my nap or while I am in the shower and I am a slave to them. I can't stop. So all of you who have been waiting patiently for me to write, or make your jewelry, make your cards, respond to your e-mails and calls, or comment on your blog, I am sorry, but the end of the line is somewhere behind driftwood.
