Over the last month or so I've been quiet, and not because I haven't had much to say, because lately more than ever I feel as though as I'm bursting with feelings and ideas. I like to take my time, not rush a good thing, allow it to properly take root and give it the room it needs to grow and the light it needs to flourish. I've been dwelling on what the future holds, and how it affects me, and more than that how it effects what I'm putting out into the world. I've especially been dwelling on what I'd like to see this space become. I realize that this journal, although my own, isn't really. This journal is for my tiny growing family, as much as it is for those who read it. This journal is the window peering into our art of living, the experience, and the whole process that shares in becoming.
I've been thinking about what it means to participate in the art of living, and how I can publish the peace and goodness that comes from that. Eventually as I began mulling it all over the choice to move everything to one place, it became more clear that this choice was an easy one. What some have titled as "work" is really just my life's calling. I have realized more than ever I will never be able to separate my life from the art I produce, as they are one in the same, building and transforming, the one inspiring the other. It felt wrong and disconnected having two separate places, a platform for my portfolio and another for my journal because they are really two halves that comprise of a whole. Without exception, tasks both mundane and magnificent become my muse as I catch myself composing and connecting the dots both forwards and backward while simultaneously finding references intertwined of my current inspirations.
Although Kindred Confetti has been a place that I loved and written in for quite some time, I am graciously closing that chapter and beginning a new one. This has been a topic of thought and deep consideration, not only with myself, but something that B and I have contemplated quite frequently since over the summer. I'm not sure why now, but it just feels right. I'll be slowly making this my new home, and not to worry, I'll be importing past posts from the old blog over here as time allows. We are at the peak of the mountain right now, as big changes are swirling and surrounding our family, our careers, and our focus. I think with big change though, we have the ability to tap into a bigger source of magic than we ever knew presently existed.
