What a month September has been.
Lots of up ands downs.
It all worked out though.
I have a beautiful new place to live, close to my grandson's school.
Within walking distance he told me.
I have a new gallery that wants to have my jewelry there all year round.
And a circle of people around me that won't let me fall.

I was watching something on tv the other day (I get messages from the strangest places) and this man said " I had to get rid of all of the external things to get to who I really am ".
I feel I have done that, I know now who I really am. I feel blessed in that knowledge.

The purples in this photo did not photograph at their true color.
The wings look almost iridescent in person.
I move on Monday so October's page will be put on the back burner, the image is there though.
It is all about community, a tribute to my friends.

I am in awe. The transition from woman to this winged creature is phenomenal. It sounds like you have truly found your wings to soar.

May your every day give you the joy you deserve.

Your transformation page is beautiful. You did a great job combing the two forms and I love the deep, bright color of the wing.

Hope you enjoy your new place.

I hope you all know I consider you my friends. This next page will be your tribute as well. You are all so kind.

All the words everyone else used apply, just magnificent. I do not know if this was intentional on your part, but I saw a peach sign in the top of the wings, closest to the body. Since it is doing the same for me, I am enjoying seeing how the pages are representing parts of peoples lives and helping us all get through the journey.
