Help!! Creativity is on hold. Despite a hectic work schedule, I stop to admire blossoming flowers in a window, a classical reminder of the goddess, Flora who encourages flowers to grow and teaches us to respond to the natural beauty of May.

What better way to celebrate Valentine's than attending my favorite ballet "Giselle." Set in the Rhineland during the middle ages, the story is about a peasant girl whose ghost, after her premature death, protects her lover from evil female spirits, the Wilis. Giselle was first presented by the Ballet du Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique at the Salle Le Peletier in Paris, France on June 28 1841. Carlotta Grisi and later Anna Pavlova performed this beautiful and magical ballet.

I'm a novice knitter who believes it's worth investing in good quality yarn even as a beginner. I have a stash that could possibly keep me busy for a lifetime. This scarf is one of my first projects done years ago with Collinette's Prism in "Monet" now discontinued. Winter = knitting!
During my walk today, I could not resist gathering small eucalyptus and winter berry branches from the ground, free gifts of nature left by the passing weekend storm. With a little imagination, one can become quite creative when there seems to be more time than money around.

January marks the month when we make those honest endeavors or resolutions that seem to dissipate by mid-March.
Janus, the Roman god of beginnings, challenges us to think about time and the risky process of change in a new direction!
