Silver inspiration to stir your holiday nostalgia. This snowy, white, silver, palette is as close to snow as it gets in Jamaica. Stellar fodder for supreme adornment. A glimpse of what is to come… With 2011 on the way I grow more sentimental by the day about 2010. Admittedly, I tend prosper more in the odd years. Overall, this year was filled with joy, patience and content. How about you?
It’s not been the easiest year and we’ve faced a few challenges. A couple of storms, an abundance of bureaucratic paperwork, a few disappointments, the loss of beloved family pets, (i.e., our brother dog, Cree, Mama and baby Guinea Pig, a couple of fish, etc.), witnessing Jamaica’s hardship and the turmoil caused by political strife here on the island, and an embarrassing fall in a grocery store, were the worst of it.
For our little family anyway.
But I cannot pretend there has not been much loss for many, many people. Haiti is still ravaged by the destruction brought by January’s earthquake, recent storms and the incidence of cholera. The passing of many Jamaicans here and abroad (including a young, very special friend) has left sadness inna whole heap of hearts. The loss of Reggae artists, Gregory Issacs, Sugar Minott, and several more, leave a devastating impact on the Reggae world. Our hearts and positive meditation go out to those who have lost. Perhaps, 2011 can bring peace and healing and homes to those who need them most. Perhaps each one will finally teach one and balance will be born.
I am inspired and excited for what’s to come. As my bizness grows, my hands are busier and busier. Gratitude. As the custom orders roll in and the finished product rolls out, Gratitude. I can’t help but smile when I think of all that has grown from this yard, this precious time, this little ol’ blog. All that has grown from my family, my hands, the divine communication and collaboration I’ve been blessed with.
It’s been an fabulous year! I hope you will agree.
For those of you who have suffered loss in 2010, I wish you peace. I wish that joy finds it’s way into your heart, into your home and comes to curl up on your lap and make you smile. I hope your grief passes with the end of the year and that it is transformed into inspiration, healing and a close connection with all that is. Everything is everything. We are one…
I give thanks for each and every one, your readership and support are my fuel.
One love, walk good, optimism prevails, may you be inspired…
