Pink Roses

I was working in the studio this morning, home alone, making a little bead with pink roses in it. Suddenly, Rick, who I thought was going to be at work all day, came tearing into the driveway in a way that told me he was in a hurry, and had forgotten something when he left this morning. Always happy to see him, I looked up from my bead just as he whipped a big bouquet of pink roses from behind his back. What a guy, huh? He does this often, especially on Fridays when a dozen roses are cheaper than carnations at Albertson's. I love that he does this, and I love that he dashed home mid-day to deliver them to me. I also love the synchronicity between the pink roses I was making out of glass, and the pink roses that arrived at my door.

Sometimes it works this way. I'll make flowers and they'll show up in some way. Sometimes I even make flower I've never seen before, thinking I'm "inventing" them, and sure enough, I'll see what I've made in a picture somewhere, or on a hike in the mountains. Coincidence? Well, sure. A co-incidence is two things happening at the same time. But mere coincidence? I think not. I think it's important coincidence that should be paid attention to. I think there's some flower-bead-human communication going on here. Call it silly if you want... And then imagine me as a little girl in a yellow dress, wearing tap shoes, and with her hand on her hip, wiggling her little body and saying, I don't care, I don't care, I don't care

That's how I see me when I say this, and actually, I say it quite often, at least in my head. If I cared about what the poo-poo-ers of the world have to say, I'd never get anything done at all. And so far, flower beads are wanting to be made, I'm happy making them, and a lot of people are happy to have them. To me, that's adding Beauty and Light to the world, which I have a hunch is everyone's real job. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
