a time to question oneself

18/02/2013

I always find that these winter months are a time when I hunker down emotionally and physically.  Like the cycles of seasons, the time of quiet and stillness lends itself to reflection.  Reflection without judgment or guilt.  Reflection giving room for a personal Spring.

This piece was done in 2007, and it is still relevant in my life today.  It is not that I do not love what I do; rather, it is not who I am.

    I do miss the snow, though; we have had almost none. I find a good snowstorm makes these feelings visible!
