trust


I am a great believer that if you have a question, you simply need to frame it clearly in your mind and stay observant- the Universe will supply the answer.

this could come in the form of an unexpected email, some thing you overhear someone saying - perhaps not directly to you but definitely directing you the way you need to go.

my artistic work evolves out of this philosphy as well [ perhaps it is a way to cope with the rather unpredictable methods i use] i start off with an idea but don't stay too attached to it... rather ride along with the results as they come out.

i think this is a great philosophy- it works well for me.
at the moment i am trying to plan what i am doing for the next year or so- work wise, where should i live, what i should apply for....
i have a few shoulds in my mind but the indications form the Universe seem to be pointing in another direction and it is a little scary just letting go and going with the flow.

i know it is the best thing to do and will work out bets in the long run but it can be a bit nerve wracking sometimes...


the deatil above is from a piece that has become an example of one of those moments... last year i was wondering what to do with myself.... thinking in a few years i would like an around the world ticket.... and low and behold i on the Foyle Trust Prize for stitched textiles and i have an around the world ticket- i was a bit shocked [ very pleased- don't worry] as it came a few years before i thought i was ready for it....
that is how it goes sometimes...

thanks for listening i feel better about letting go with the 'shoulds' and going ith the flow, now
