Thanks for popping in. How has your day been? Has it been a good day? Or a growing day? With everything that’s going on in the world, it is so very easy to get caught up in the shocking developments both at home and abroad. And if you’re pinned to the news, then you will be soaking up all that collective sadness, fear and awfulness. It’s seeps into your subconscious; it brings you down, makes you anxious – if you let it.
Hang on though. Reality check coming through right NOW.
It’s 8pm here. And suddenly the whole of our street has come alive. The people are out cheering and clapping, banging pots and lids and hooting and singing! Ah yes. That’s right. It’s a tribute to those amazingly brave Doctors and Nurses and NHS staff who are laying their lives on the line to help others.
Let me add the postmen and the shop assistants and the dustbin men and the delivery men to that list. And women of course! All those people who make it possible for you and me to stay at home and be safe.
And I had the audacity to think I was having a bad day yesterday. Silly woman. Sometimes I just need a little leveller – and the good people of Crowborough just supplied me with one. No no no. Not a bad day. Let’s just call it a growing day. In fact, when I think about it, I had a pretty good day! It’s all about perspective, eh.
So as I wrap it up for the day, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
Here’s a little Pergamano gallery of lovely artwork by the Clarity Team, using that uplifting new Groovi plate which Linda Williams designed for us, and which sold out today on HOCHANDA!
Mmmm. Fresh and lovely.
Be safe, keep crafting.
Love and hugs
