quiet creativity

Yes! I am still here, working quietly in the background.
If you could see me, you'd find me taking lots of photographs and even a video or two, traveling to state parks & disovering Florida on my "date days" with Steven, tweaking my blogs and websites, talking with my husband, my mom and my sister, visiting local beaches and gathering treasures, taking Nia movement classes (the best thing I have done for myself during this time), and celebrating an anniversary of the heart on October 25th with Steven by going to Sanibel Island last week, one of our favorite spots.

Plus, I have been visiting Museums, watching dance performances, cooking creatively, planting flowers (and weeding!) plus harvesting basil, parsley, rosemary and even romaine lettuce, wow! I have been quiet here on my blog since my dad passed away, I think because I have not done a lot of mixed media art like I usually do -that is what I typically share here. I realized the other day though, that I have been doing a whole lot of other creative things while I have been thinking, processing and of course, supporting my mom. It feels right, but I wanted you to know.

"date day" at Myakka River State Park Oct 16

Yes, you must be aware of Alligators!
Myakka River State Park is one of Florida's oldest and largest parks.

76 feet up - Myakka has a canopy walk through the trees and a tower to climb up!

Steven being silly - pretending to fish like an Ibis!

There's more I could share, that's for sure -but this is enough! I'll be back . . . . I am just taking my time about it and not worrying. -yours creatively, lenna
