Just feel like sharing:
It's just been a busy week. I've done my best to stay up with most of your blogs, and have enjoyed reading what everyone is up to, writing and creating.
My work plate is full, lots of new clients; am down sizing my office. Getting rid of children's games/toy's as, after eighteen years, I no longer work with kids. Am only seeing adults now. Tomorrow someone from an agency will come to take a cupboard full of them away. (games not kids). ;-) And the cupboard will come home with me and I will use it to store fabric for my art quilting projects.
My grand children will inherit some of the games, the doll house, puppet theater, puppets and some other toys. I feel like a cycle has played it self out in my career. Trying to make life easier, less complicated. If you can call a caseload of adults with depression, anxiety, marital issues, post traumatic stress, substance abuse, etc. uncomplicated. I've already decreased my working days from five to four.
With the idea of more time to create art, which I do on the fifth day! And weekend when we are not galavanting all over town or to enviorns close by.
I'm working with some students and counseling interns and it's exciting to see their excitment for their new field, and how clearly I remember being where they are now, and it seems like only yesterday...it goes by so quickly...life does... Fortunately for me, I love what I do, being able to be a guide in peoples lives, helping them to see, to figure out how to make changes in their lives, to make things better, to heal. Such rewarding work.
My latest excitement on my personal front is my son's upcoming wedding. The time draws closer as August is tomorrow and two weeks later we'll be celebrating this new union. Two happy people joining together and joining families, east and west, a time of happiness for many.
Thanks for letting me share this with you.
