So should I start every post with "yikes! It's been a while" and just be done with it? So much and so little going on. Have been getting commissions for reliquaries, and hope to have permission to show one or two. They are just so personal and sacred...little bits and favorite toys and plaster circles with precious pawprints...a collar...maybe some curls of fur...all entrusted to me to enshrine in an assemblage worthy of the well-loved life that once cuddled up and chased a ball and stole a heart or two. I am honored, truly, to do this work.
I was up most of last night with a screaming hip and aching hands, so I will leave you with a promise to fill you in on some great good news ... Tomorrow. But know that a goodness and kindness has returned to me and sunk into the place formerly occupied by a crusty & unkind swirl within me. Just a thin ribbon, but enough to poison.
And Henry is doing just fine, despite cleaning out the catbox for me - clumping litter stuck in his teeth created quite a night's work for me. No ill effects to report.
See you in the morning...sleep well.
