Listen, Say Thank You

Joshua Tree

My word for this year was "Listen". As someone always moving, always wandering, and planning the next thing, this word feels less of a reassurance and more of a challenge. Listen to the voice of the spirit, listen to my gut, listen to my partner, my friends, my home. 
When I start to listen to my work, things start to take form. The work starts to tell me what it's about. 
But what I didn't expect was how much I would start saying "thank you" in response. Thank you for telling me what you need, thank you for challenging me to grow. To a higher power who I believe gave me a home this year with a little studio, thank you. To the earth for showing me incredible beauty in the Southwest, thank you.
