March - From the Dark Recesses

When I was told I had to move out of my apartment, for no other reason than he doesn't want to rent it anymore, I thought it couldn't get any worse than that. Events since then have proven me wrong.

I usually can keep a sunny disposition, I always try to remember that things happen for a reason but lately I can not see the silver lining. I only see the deep dark recesses.

The photo I chose to bead on for this month is of a piece of bark, again from my special island. Out of the dark recesses of this bark, things are growing. I hoped as I beaded I could remember that the universe wastes nothing, from death grows life, it is just transformation. I am still having a tough time believing it.

Stop thinking the depth of dispair. Just like your page, something good is there, you just haven't seen it yet. Put the thought in your mind that you will be finding a bright new apartment in the perfect neighborhood and will be extremely affordable. Can't you see it now? Keep that picture in your mind.

Brenda - it sounds like you're going through a bad stretch of time right now, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope those dark recesses shift to something more hopeful and uplifting.

Just doesn't want to rent it anymore! What a lame excuse! I sure hope you find something better and soon.

Your page is very descriptive. I hope things start growing for you soon. Sometimes even those who want to see the bright side find it difficult when things happen that don't have to. Good luck.

As your page shows, there is even beauty in dark recesses. (I love this page!) The lightness will come, the good will come, maybe not in the way you hope, but it will!!!

I recall your transformation piece from last year's BJP... I know that this bad time will transform into something fulfilling. Your piece, in the meantime, reflects your hopes... Both it and you are beautiful beyond compare. I am sending tiger vibes of strength. Love, Robin A.

This piece is really beautifully portrayed...I love the growth coming out of the tree -- usually those dark recesses are very fertile places full of nutrients and strength -- I'm sorry for your dark time but I feel so much beauty in this piece. I also loved the post about your grandmother -- what a beautiful heart she had...
