Every so often I'll tromp through the snow to the storage shed behind the house, and rummage around in a box or two, looking for treasures. I recently rediscovered some gemstones I'd bought in Tucson a few years ago, not knowing what I'd do with them. Sometimes it takes a while for a thing to make its destiny known, and yesterday, a strand of lovely faceted, translucent aquamarines spoke to me, loud and clear. They were ready to become jewelry. I used up every single one, and kept a pair of swing earrings for myself. Today I'll head back to the shed, hoping to unearth more forgotten buried treasures. And next year, I may have to get myself back to Tucson!
