Fast and Slow...

It's a strange thing that happens when you open your heart to the Universe, allowing things to happen in their own way and at their own speed. At times you trip over yourself, moving faster than you ever thought possible. At other times, things seem to drag slowly at a snail's pace. The carefully constructed bubble, that moderates the environment around you, is burst and you're subjected to the elements. It's scary. It's beautiful. And you're left feeling a disparate blur of speed and inactivity.

The preparations for the Store are coming together. Somehow, I've managed to work on these things AND carry on as scheduled, entertaining company, working on deadlines, and just doing what needs to be done. I lay awake at night dreaming the Store into being. I lay awake at night pouring my heart into this place that I want so desperately to work out. In my heart and mind it's more than just a place to buy and sell things, but a place to inspire and to connect. It's a place to discover. I feel feverish with possibility.

New things are coming that I hope everyone will enjoy.

Beautiful post! So excited for you. A good friend of mine used to say: "Change can feel like you are on a white water raft without a paddle - just make sure you are on the right river and let the universe do the steering".
