more nightwood ny and life

i've blogged nightwood ny with their wonderful interior spaces and upholstered furniture but never their recycled wood pieces so that's what i'm starting the morning with today.  i like to check their site every couple months to see the new stuff in the gallery.  i really like their style and find looking at their stuff is a little creative motivational jolt for me.

and i'll tell you folks, i really am in need of this these days.  i'm in a bit of a dry spell.  i have resisted sharing this here.  why?  i don't know.  maybe pride.  or if i speak it it will make it more solid and harder to banish.  but it happens to everyone so why shouldn't i experience it and recognize it, right?

i like to share in my blog what makes me excited creatively speaking but i also like to be honest here. 

i realize there is a lot going on around me these days.  i have had a good friend pass away, i have another who just split with her husband and moved out of their house.  and then another going through a great deal emotionally.  when i step back and look at all that as well as the details of my own personal life at the moment i think, of course i am feeling the chaos.

so i'm trying to go easy on myself and wait for time to do it's thing.  i'm doing yoga.  which i really love.  and eating better.  that sounds so pedestrian but i think what we eat has a pretty significant impact on our well-being.

i do hope you are not at one of these weird life junctures like me but if you are, i hear ya.

take your time! You know what will take care of yourself. That's the most important thing.

i am completely at a 'weird life juncture' myself so completely understand your situation. i'm doing my best to be patient in waiting for creativity to return and new opportunities to arise - it always creeps up on you when you least expect it! :)

Melissa de la Fuente said...

Of course you feel the chaos...I think anyone in tune to their surroundings, like you are, can't help but feel some kind of reverberations in their own life. I like Polestar's advice..."take your time" Time heals all, I think. Give yourself a break, for sure and no worries...it will come back( it always does) And I think you are doing the right thing, taking care of yourself and reconnecting. I hear you and am sending you lots of love.

I completely feel you! Lately I've been really feeling disconnected from what I do, even though I try to always blog honestly and with integrity. I think we probably need some downtime, some time in nature. It's completely natural. Don't worry and keep being gentle and kind to yourself.

I know well the weird life junctures, and if I can only be gentle enough with myself to remember to take it easy, it always goes so much better! Take care of yourself Liane, just like you're doing. We all need to rest and nurture ourselves a little extra sometimes in this world of chaos.

you bring so much to all of us
thru your blog..we forget as

process that goes into that.

good thoughts to you today!

I am, girl. So I feel you right back. Someone else said for you to take your time getting back into the creative zone. I'm doing the same. Playing with my kids, and quietly knitting until I feel it again. Going to go check out the Nightwood, Ny site now. I could use a jolt. I figure, life is cyclical, right? We have to eventually inhale, which is what this time is for.

Thank you for all you share here. I just found you through Etsy and appreciate your great talents and honesty. My (estranged) father died last year and my wise mother warned me to expect to get sick, even tho I thought I was not directly affected by his passing... Boy was she right! I am just now beginning to get back to my old ways - and yoga and healthy eating have been key, along with solitude and nature.
Blessings to you,

I heard the word "entropy" three times yesterday. That's gotta mean something, right? I know this seems totally off-topic, but I think it might not be.

love ya!

Thinking of you Liane. A dear friend once told me that I have talent and that I would soon find my way and to rock it. I'm finding it....not as quickly as I'd like, but it's coming. You're doing the right thing...yoga, eating well, reflecting...all this will help recharge you. It is clear that you inspire so many...and it is clear how much time you invest. Go ahead and take your time. All my best, Mandy
