practical magic

Every year around Halloween time I try to watch the movie Practical Magic. It's one of my favorites. One quote which truly inspires me is when Stockard Channing says, "My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!" Some people spend their whole life trying to "fit in" but it's really a waste of energy. Why not be authentic!

Lately I have had a dry spell with my creativity. I just have alot going on in my personal life and have done a bit of traveling over the past few weeks. Now is the time where I am recuperating and focusing on my health. My first priority is to finish my children's book but I am also open to doing crafts and commissions for the upcoming season.

The temperature recently dropped here and it's gorgeous in the evening especially. There is finally a cool, crisp breeze. I feel at my best this time of year. It would be nice to drive up north a bit to catch a glimpse of the autumn foliage. The pumpkin scented candles are glowing in my house...I am in love with fall.
