Welcome to 2021. The year has been awaited with great anticipation, but the fact of the matter is that PATIENCE will be required before any miracle happens. Most of my friends know that I wasn’t expecting this situation to get better until 2024 LOL! The prospect of a change sooner than my assumed timeline is AMAZING.
On January 1 I traveled back from the Dominican Republic, my home country. My parents are aging and ailing, and when they request our presence for their favorite holiday, I no longer hesitate to make arrangements. Although the Covid safety protocols during travel were strictly enforced, I did pause before booking, but filial piety is a great motivator. My brief stay was a breath of fresh tropical air, and had me wondering why I choose to endure winter. I was able to harvest some vibrant petals and foliage. Look for them in future designs;-)
It becomes obvious why I incorporate the COLORS of Nature into my designs and indeed my life. You can take the girl/artist out of the tropics, but you can’t take the tropics out of the girl/artist.
In the end, I very much believe that it’s not WHAT you do as much as WHO you do it with. I’ve established some wonderful relationships here in Louisville, so don’t look for any relocation news anytime soon. Blood is thicker than water, but water is essential!
