today was beautiful. the sun was shining bright, even a little warm-ish. as soon as i peeked outside this morning, i knew i needed to be outside, then i decided spee and marley should be too. so, we took a long stoll down a long trail and breathed and talked and listened.
each year, as spring approaches, there’s that moment when the distinct smell of the earth rises up and into the air around which we breathe. i smelled that today on our walk. i breathed it in deeply with my eyes closed. there is something, some wonderful memory, some switch, i don’t know exactly what it is, but oh, i love that smell.
there’s another thing in the air, too. i’m not sure why, but change seams to be the topic of choice among my artist friends as of late. not just change for the sake of change, but change because it’s needed or change because we are naturally evolving and what was is no longer satisfying, or wanted. that, to me, is growth and growth is good. i’ve been feeling the need for change in my business and in my life, since my business, for most of last year. as i’ve taken these last two months off from work and have had the time to spend with my own family and my own projects, this whisper of change has gotten pretty loud in my head. i knew it was there, it was nagging me, but life was too busy and fast to hear it clearly.
i’m still working out all the details, but i’m getting closer everyday. there will be some changes to my business and i’m happy about it. my family is happy about it. it feels right and natural. i will no longer be offering certain types of sessions and perhaps be adding a new one or two. i’m testing the waters. i’m excited and a little nervous, but i feel alive. i’ll share more when it’s time.
for now, i’m still strolling and enjoying it.
