The assignment today from Bloggin101 is to post something inspired by the “About Me” page I wrote yesterday. Weirdly enough, as you’d think someone who takes the time to blog would want to say something about themselves, I don’t want to talk more about me. I felt I said enough yesterday, so what more do I choose to tell you.
I have toe rings, I sometimes sing
my eyes are blue, my hair is grey
I love to play with polymer clay.
I took a class to play with glass
but my beads aren’t round, so I melt them down
I use my kiln to fuse and slump it, and also for glass that is dichroic.
Some clay, glass, metal or wire
entwined in a fashion
to make simple jewellery – my hobby “passion”
I was a carer for my husband for 3 years before he died, raising our girls through this time with the constant help of my Mum (mother of advanced age- MOAA), who cared for them whilst I spent large amounts of time at the hospital with my husband. I sadly admit now that I can’t remember a lot of things from those years, my girls often say “do you remember when ……..Mum?” and I can’t. It breaks my heart that I cannot remember those precious years when they were so young.
So funny, weird, silly is my way of coping with what has been lost. Sometimes it is just easier for me to write it in rhyme.
I’m trying to focus on happy, positive (without going to the perky positivity of extremes), joyful things in life. Which, I guess, is what my blog is about. So there, in a way I have been inspired by writing this post.
