It’s Good To Be Back …
I have been learning how to make bracelets, rings, necklaces. I love making the herringbone design. I enjoy twisting, turning the wire in my hands to shape, mold around each bead. I believe I’ve become addicted to wire-wrapping beads.
I have a page called Imperfect Creations by Gloria on Facebook. I have been putting photos of artwork I’ve done through times … things I make with my hands. Sometimes someone will buy a piece of jewelry from me. People suggest I have a business … I don’t want a business nor the pressure that comes with it. If someone sees something I’ve already made … they can just tell me. I won’t make special orders. That would take the pleasure out of doing what, when, where I want to do things. I am a free spirit I guess.
I will be coming back to write about the grief of a grieving mother. It will be 8 years on May 29th since Tommy … my son … died. I promised years ago I would always tell you how it is with this grieving mother. When I write about it you will see I’ve come far in my grief. I can live with it now.
I will write my poems, short stories … whatever about life I’m feeling.
It’s nice to be back. I look forward to writing once again.
I haven’t written for a long time … I didn’t have anything I wanted to write about. I guess all writers, artists do that and come back to doing what they love best when … it’s time. We always know when it’s time to begin again. I’m ready to begin again 🙂
