Just came out of a beautiful store which featured the silver work of a father, daughter and now the sculpting work of the 15 year old grandson. (Lew Allen & Lou Allen) I struck up a conversation with Greg behind the counter and Monica who was visiting. The work in the store was in keeping with my tastes and they were both enthused to see my work that I was wearing.
Monica left and when I walked out of the store she was waiting for me. After she told me where to have a cold beer she told me that I'll be back here. "I feel energy through the hands and you'll be back. God gives us angels and directs us where we need to go and who we need to meet along the way."
So many things in my life have recently changed to such a monumental degree that it's hard not to listen to something like that and just say "ok". Sounds good to me.
A friend told me to contact a woman who now lives in Santa Fe and have a reading done. "Ok" sounds good to me. Spoke to this woman this morning and she told me that she now lives in Sedona. I just so happen to have an evening in Sedona that I was planning on just having dinner as I pass through, now I will meet on the 25th for a reading the night before I fly back to New York.
Had I not said yes to my neighbor's introduction and stayed with a complete stranger in Santa Fe I would have missed out on an amazingly inspirational weekend.
There are times in our lives that saying "No, I think I'll pass" is not an option. This is that time in my life.
I started my journey into jewelry making in 2005 while I was working in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, an area inundated with amazing artisans. I started with glass, which led to silver, which led to inlay, which led to joy.
