Moving on...........

Life will be very different from now on........so many plans cut short - the things we were going to do together - travelling, growing stuff, talking about things - just the everyday companionable things are now simply gone from my life.
But I need to move on, pick up what pieces I can and carry on doing the things that I love to do. In time, I hope I can delight in them again. Let me share with you a poem by Bob's favourite poet W.B. Yeats. He first read this to me when I was a starry-eyed sixteen-year-old and smitten with this enigmatic, beautiful man, who was all of eighteen.

                                He Wishes For the Cloths Of Heaven

                                Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
                                Enwrought with golden and silver light,
                                The blue and the dim and the dark cloths 
                                Of night and light and the half-light,
                                I would spread the cloths under your feet:
                                But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
                                I have spread my dreams under your feet;
                               Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I'm starting to spend a little time in my studio as I feel able and as dealing with the practicalities of winding up an estate allow - it is good to be able to start creating again. 

This little one is finished now and I'm working on a larger piece for an exhibition in June.....will post a wip pictures when I have something to show. It is a piece of sculpture, not a doll.

Voi sinun suuri suru ja on hyvä kun olet voinut jo työskennellä. On hyvä puhua ja käsitellä asioita jolloin juku päivä mielesi on tasapainossa.
Ihana nukke ja suloiset vaatteet ja hänen kengät ovat makean söpöt.

Suzie, If I lived near I would hug you. You are doing so well. Although I'm sure there are times that life is hard. Your little doll is a dream, just like a normal kid. Beautiful.
I hope you can enjoy being in your studio, we love to see what creations come out of there.
Big Hugs
Kay

Susie, you have been in my thoughts and prayers. I know how hard things are for you right now and how difficult it is to function day to day so know there are people who are wishing you the very best.
This little doll is beautiful and perfect in every detail just like all of your creations.
Best wishes and warm hugs

Susie, I too am very glad that you are beginning to feel able to create again. There is something so beautifully unique in creating, I know, which benefits the spirit and lifts us up little by little.
God Bless you sweetheart, and know you are much cared about on here.

Thinking of you everyday Susie. I love your little people with their fancy clothes, adorable! ♥Judi

Hi Susie,
Sorry to see that some nutter has decided to flood your blog.
Have you got your settings done so you can moderate and choose which messages go on? You can do this on your settings.

In the meantime, I forgot to say last time how nice your doll is, and I am still thinking of you alongside your other friends on here.

Hope to see some more lovely dolls soon. xxx

Well......that was annoying! I've had this blog for quite a few years now and I've never had any stupid troll stuff like that before. Deleted it all - if it happens again, I will do as you suggest, Karin and start moderating comments. have almost finished the new piece of sculpture - just a bit of assembly required and a few more licks of paint and I can photograph it and write a bit about it.

I'm looking forward to your new sculpture and your new little girl in red is beautiful. I can't really imagine how you are feeling after such a sudden loss of your partner. I am thinking of you everyday and wishing you well.
