Lately life has consisted of spending all day in the studio making dozens of massage oils, wearing the same threadbare Alice in chains shirt everyday, foraging for wildflowers and trying to figure out how I will lift a 50 lb sack of salt and then wondering how I went through it so quickly. Right now my studio is like a labrynth of herb jars, stacks and stacks of bottles, empty oil bottles and rose petals everywhere. I am finally going into this head first and feeling good about it. It feels like summer came and went without leaving a trace. Usually my summers are spent griping about the heat and feeling ill due to the tempreture. (I am just not meant for these Southern California summers) but oddly enough it rained more than it did this winter albeit less heavily and it's been more cloudy than it has been all year. Sure there have been hot days but nothing like the 100 + summers of the past few years. And for this I am thankful amongst many other things at the moment. It's moments like these where I can take the time to be still, step back and look at all my hard work paying off and just feel incredibly grateful.
