Life is Full

I had cause to celebrate yesterday as I was able to pick up my new flute from Dave and Marlene at Celtic Lands Irish Flutes.  It is gorgeous and has a lovely sound already, even though I have not adjusted to playing it yet.  Every flute is slightly different and so a flute player has to adjust to the instrument over time.  I am really, really thrilled to have it!

Dave’s flutes all come with a case but I wanted something a little more funky than a gun case, plus I need something to carry my whistles as well.  So my son Jack and I scoured some antiquey stores and found a cute vintage Samsonite suit case into which I built foam and supports to keep the instruments safe and sound when traveling.

Every month on the Full Moon, some of my artist friends and I get together to celebrate this monthly natural occurrence as well as our intuitive, feminine way of making art.  Yesterday was the Full Moon so last night Lisa, who just landed a position teaching ceramics, came over with some clay and taught me how to make lovely spherical rattles that, when I looked at them, reminded me of the moon that brought us together.  Here’s Lisa’s nearly complete…

And here are mine and Maddie’s in process…

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts on these posts as well. Drop me line in the comments section won't you?
