dogwood floral crown
I would have liked to announce about the new collection this week. I would have liked to have a grand opening of sorts - but as it stands I am not done. Time stands against me. Sewing and cutting and photographing and listing are tasks I am aiming to make time for this week. Time gets away from me. I am always over-committing and saying yes to every opportunity that is presented to me even amidst my lack of spare time.
At the wee hours of the morning, I crawl in bed always thinking where did my time go. I am acting like time is tangible. These day I find myself over working. My friend even wrote REST on the top of my to-do list this week. I can't remember the last time I did something because I wanted to.
Lao Tzu said "Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time' is to say "I don't want to.'" When you live from task to task and your days are up of endless to-do lists, sadly I forget to make time for in the moment, for the living, and for simply being human. As an ode to making that time for being, I seized the glorious moment of spring and made a floral crown with dogwood blooms. So this week I was human and did something other than my to-do list, I savored spring so next week I will definitely have the new collection up!
