A Simply Good Year

The new year has just begun and I find myself
wondering what it will bring:  Beauty, Creativity, Adventure.
I'm hoping for all of the above, but I'm also longing for
days filled with quiet, simple pleasures.
I wasn't able to create much art in 2012, this Timekeeper was one
of the few pieces I managed to get done.  He has gone to a good
home and joins a small collection of my work, but I have his image to remind
me that while time marches on, we don't always have to race around
at a break-neck pace. 
Sometimes if we just take one day at a time
we can pause long enough to enjoy the small, quiet things that bring such
pleasure:  the smell of fresh coffee, the sparkle of snow under a clear
blue sky, a warm bed and a good book, reuniting with good friends.

So Happy New Year dear friends,
I hope your 2013 is filled with simple joys.


  1. Susan this piece is AMAZING!!!
    My gosh what talent!

    I hope 2013 gives you the time to be more creative and for enjoying the simple pleasures of everyday life.
    Maybe we can keep each other strong on those days we start to stray from positive thinking :)
