Time To Relax

This past weekend I had my Last Chance Studio Sale, when it was done I closed up shop for the rest of the year and into January.   Now comes the time to start focusing heavily on creating pots for next spring.  Of course I still have to keep the gallery's and shops stocked but that too can come from the pieces I create over the next few months. 
For now I'm tired and grateful.  It seems like this fall and winter have been particularity busy, which is a good thing but it's draining.  My tired is not a bad tired, but I do feel like I need to rest.  I imagine it's similar to the type of exhaustion someone would feel after running a marathon or an iron man (only without the muscle pain).  Not being the athletic type I'm not really sure, I just know it's a good tired and a good healing needed. 
I was reminded that this is a good time to take a few minutes each day and meditate.  It's something I had stopped doing as I got really busy.  I'm not sure it's the best thing to give up when I'm stressed for time but it went away.  Now I'll give myself that gift.  It will help me to heal.
I am also very grateful to all the people who came to my shows and shops.  I'm thankful for the people who bought my pottery so I can continue to make more, I'm grateful to the people who visited my booth just to chat.  It's nice to take that time to visit and learn what's happening in the lives of my friends.  And I'm thankful to the people who brought me gifts like food from their garden, to share in the joy of creating.
I am also forever grateful to Janet for all of the support she's given to me, for all of the weekends she's given up to hang around an art festival, for the cookies she's baked and then given away to customers, and for the love she's shown every step of the way.  Thank you.
