Chaos theory scientists call it bifurcation of homeostasis. I call it - getting up after you have fallen on your ass. These last two weeks have been pure chaos. With baby steps I can feel the pendulum swinging back the other way - back toward normalcy but sadly we aren't there yet. This, on my first day back in the studio, I just sit - exhausted. Out of the corner of my eye I see a shell filled with sea glass. Polished and unpolished there together. Oh...I see how it is. If you want to be polished and smooth you have to be tumbled around by the turbulent waters and rocky shores. That is certainly what it has felt like! Hopefully we have all been polished enough by this latest event. With luck on my side you may see me stretched out on some beach all smooth and round and wearing green. Somebody else can be the unfinished blue sea glass.
