sweet mystery

sweet mystery

Uncertainly and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you unduly for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.

-R.I. Fitzhenry


Still taking it day by day. But, I am finding at least a few inspired moments to bring out the camera again. With all the hub-bub of more work than I can handle (in the best possible way-if there ever was such a thing) it’s harder and harder to find the moments of stillness and wonder.


I suppose now I am finding the inspiration more amidst the whirling days and in the uncertainty of what this all means and where it’s all going.  The mystery of life seems to be the reality right now. I don’t know what’s to come. I’m not sure what November holds. I do know that as far as October goes, there won’t be much spare time at all. And yet, I know that if I let that be OK, it will be OK.


If I embrace the energies of life as they are, then I will be fine. Busy, yes. Scattered, probably. But overall, just fine.


What are the mysteries your life these days? Care to illuminate us?

    We’re trying to solve the mysteries of life with a newborn! So far, so good, but like you we’re taking it day-to-day.

    Yesterday’s mystery – how the act of dumping cinnamon on a latte could result in something so pretty:

    And now I have Sarah Mclachlan’s Building a Mystery running through my head.

    I know in times when we are just bombarded from all directions it’s so hard to take the minute and think about why it’s all happening. I’m sure in your case it just validates who you are and what your work it about. People want you involved. And I think that’s a great thing.

    No mysteries here except in the mysteries of antiquing. Road Trip

    Uncertainty my daily state of meaning, as I deal with the mystery of trying to figure out what my twins are thinking, or feeling, or inspired be. They both have autism and non-verbal though I must admit, that however difficult it is to live in this state of worry, everyday is NEW and EXCITING and I am constantly inspired to find new ways to reach them. What a beautiful quote. Thank you.

    Illumination comes in so many forms. For me right now it is Fall in New England.

    Great mysteries for me as well. Where will the business go this winter? How slow will things be? How do I keep it growing at a nice pace? All a mystery 🙂

    One thing is for sure, I have been invited to be a godmother to one of my twin nephews, so I’m going to have a brand new baby in my arms all weekend. There is a special kind of certainty to that!
