Changing focus

















Since I became pregnant, I have noticed a change in my levels of concentration and focus. Mainly what I've noticed is that I've slowed down naturally - something I have been trying to achieve for many years but never quite managed. But now, my usually busy and sometimes manically driven mind have really calmed down. It feels good. I'm not doing as much, but the things that I am doing, I am a lot more present and involved in.

This has also meant that I am not doing as much art, hence the slowdown in the number of posts that have been going up here lately. Instead I am finally going to make the time to learn to knit and crochet. It's something I've been wanting to do for years but I never slowed down enough to do so. It does require patience. And now feels like the right time to start. So you may not see many posts here for a while, but I am not going away completely.

Thanks to those of you who keep checking back. I really appreciate it.

How appropriate that you've drawn a female Mallard pulling into herself and going with her instinct. Wonderful! Sending you gentle thoughts in this early time of connecting with your little one inside you. How great is that!

Dear Tammy...I rec'd my beautiful ATC today and it couldn't have come at a better time. I've been sick for 6 days now with the flu...ugh. So thank you, thank you!!! Black and white kitties are a weakness of mine. I'll treasure this always.
I hope you're feeling well in your pregnancy. Sending hugs and good thoughts! I'll be posting this on my gratitude blog as soon as I feel better :) XX Laurel
