Shall we get on with it?...

Clean it up.
Sweep it out.

Holidays seem to put real life on hold, don't they?
Maybe that's some of the attraction since so many
aren't too fond of what they live every day. Sad, that.

My life is far from exciting and I never expect perfect.
I am, however, absolutely enjoying what my life is now.

I continue to work on ideas for the Pondering....... store.
I want to thank all of you who ordered items so far. I'm
hoping to see business pick up in the coming year.
Your business is very much appreciated and I hope you are
pleased with what you received. To all of you, whether you
have purchased anything or not, please know I am open
to any and all suggestions for the store. Leave comments
or send email.
I've come to realize that it will take time and trial and error
to create more of what people want, whether it be for
themselves or others.

I love this creative process and am enjoying some collaborating
with Berry (Boneman) on some of the ideas and products.
As a matter of fact, he will be in Florida in a few days. Some of
our time will be spent on more collaborating. Some of our time
will be spent viewing the ocean from a balcony.
We'll make time for tourist-y type trips to St. Augustine, Deland,
Ponce Inlet and perhaps Cross Creek. Blogging will be light.
He'll get to meet Sparky, too.

I don't believe anyone has a clear view of their life path. But, I
believe more now than before that if one has a dream based on a
true passion and is willing... no, determined... to work toward
that dream with every bit of their heart and soul, the dream can
be realized. The ending reality might be different than imagined
but it might also be better than imagined.

What we need and what life brings to us, after working hard,
could be a dream beyond imagination.
Pursue. Persevere.
Stay open to possibilities.

What a lovely post - and I believe you are right....

And on that note, my purchases arrived just now, and I am SO pleased with the items! I will be back for more, dear artist Jean, as you capture so many wonderful aspirations!

All the best in 2010!

Your phrase is brilliant

ah, Jeannie, you made my day! I'm so glad you are pleased.

Anon, 'brilliant' might be stretching it a bit but thanks.

As good a definition of the workings of faith as any I have seen in a while Jean. Just keep moving along as you're heart and mind desires.

Nicely done.

I think I've said it before, but your resilience is so inspiring.

Happy holidays Jean, and best wishes for your growing success in the coming year and beyond.

A post to warm the cockles of my heart.
You're exactly right.

Jean said...

WM, life requires faith, I'd say.

Thank you, Mark.

Thank you, Freddie. We strong must stick together :-)

Bless you, Larry!

The way you've put the old life behind and pushed ahead is just great. I'm glad you stuck with your dream, and I do indeed wish you the best of luck!

Jean said...

aw, thank you, Dave!
I still have much work to do but, at least I don't mind doing it. Well, most of it ;-)
