Traveling Mercies

I quit my long-time job last week. You know, the one that pays the bills? Yep, I quit a job I have loved. Today I’m running off to sunshine and bright skies (I hope) so I can gain some perspective and a view of brighter days. The flight south leaves Rochester NY at dusk – I’m looking forward to watching the lights twinkle as we follow the Appalachian Mountains south.

Isn’t it amazing how quickly our lives can change? I think this is why I like quilts – they represent an elusive moment in time – the celebration of a new baby, the marking of a retirement, the exuberance for spring, the reverence for a special holiday, and the everyday pleasure of a certain season of our lives.

In the midst of all this change, I’m searching for quilting inspiration. I need a goal. I need an anchor. I need motivation/inspiration/gumption to get inside my studio and create. Advice on moving on would be welcome!

Before I go, here are a few quick pictures from Easter weekend

That’s not fog — its the rain evaporating after the sun finally broke through the clouds
Mom and I watched a cardinal in my backyard on Friday night. She bought this for me on Saturday.

    Life is change – sometimes change for the good and sometimes changes that we think are not so good. I’m not one bit surprised that you saw a cardinal in your backyard on Friday. I do believe it’s your dad saying I’m always around and always, always, always in your heart. {{Hugs}} I hope the job change is a good thing and your choice, a.k.a. retirement. I think of you guys often and am sending healing prayers your way. ~smile~ Roseanne
