Not possible I say to myself, to settle my chaos. To gather it all, to Make Sense. I can only feel it, like in a dream. Words can be useless in times like these. Like a lot of dreams, I cannot remember in a way to explain, but there was a going. Here, evidence of that. What if art is simply evidence...?
Then, looking back, finding story told. Yes, that is why I continue, so there might be crumbs. Maybe simply evidence of thoughts caught. This glossary thing is helping me speak my own languge.
Nest of Days is on the table, maybe becoming bigger, Grow is by the sewing chair waiting for me to cross a red line, and this one, folded over at the top, because it is too tall, hangs on the wall to remind me it is all A Balancing Act. It needs to be somewhere else, it is and will remain a curtain.
And for the record, I am, officially, a Nana.
congratulations !!! I’m a nana too .
best thing in this world is my granddaughter .
I’m not a Nana, but a Dadima, which is an Indian term for “father’s mother.” I love being a Dadima, but gosh! Grandchildren grow up faster than children! Mine will be 13 and 9.5 in a couple of weeks.
So happy for you and your family.
Congratulations to you and your family. Newborns are so precious and pure. Beautiful pictures through the veil, adds to the mystery of life.
Congratulations to you Nana!!!!
Grandbabies are SO very precious!

Very Best Wishes to you & your loved ones– Welcome to the World, Lil Bruno!
Congratulations! A lucky child to have a Nana like you.
Congratulations! A special joy!
JOY in your best name ever, dear Nana. My grand kids do not call me Nana but call me GrandMa with the M capitalized; they have also called me the great G, Graham Cracker, and Goofy Grand! You will see how it will go, these wonderful adventures that await. This quote, by the late author and environmentalist Rachel Carson was given to me when I became a Grandmother and I, in turn, have given it to all I know who have become Nanas/Grandmothers for it so dearly explains what we can become to our grandchildren. I should say that it equally applies to GrandPas as well!)
” If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”
What a lovely quote to share Marti.
A new chapter in your life! Congrats Jude

I am wrestling with a lot of “chaos” also… Definitely unsettling.
I got to babysit my grandson Monday, he gave me a hug and oh that is the stuff. Elixir for the soul.
Such good news! Congratulations! Showers of joy and love to the little one and to you and family!❤️
Nana! … how absolutely wonderful … such happy days to come … please kiss the top of Bruno’s tiny head for me … oh joy!!!
Oh, Nana! The places you two will go!!
A Nana! Oh wow! That is delightful news! The beginning of another story..a lovely love story. Yes, Congratulations!!
Your glossary continues to very simply, be a joy. I love the fact I can start anywhere and find myself going somewhere…sometimes to a new place or sometimes revisiting. It has the quality of never being out of tune:)
Congrats and welcome little Bruno! I hope you are able to connect with the little fellow soon, I can still remember that special feeling of holding my first grandbaby.
A Balancing act, another beauty!
So good be a Nana! 🙂 Really I’ was as well – twenty years ago for the first time! believe? me no! Enjoy, enjoy enjoy! (avó méri in portuguese)
Congratulations nana! 💕
I like how the it looks folded over at the top… being off center 💙💙💙
Congratulations to you and family on newest little one!
I don’t know if it helps, but I have found a certain amount of chaos is a necessary part of creating. A stage in the process- it gets resolved as the new object emerges. But I am sure you know this.
All the best.
oh, wonderful wonderful!
