Neil Gaiman Make Good Art

Instead of a song today, I’m offering this wonderful, inspiring speech.

I realize that I missed my second post last week.

I apologize, my friendly blog reader, and hope that you will forgive me.

molly-pam-cf-2012Our CreekFest event was a smashing success. (click the link to see more pictures.)We had 2000 people come through town. The Carnival, the exhibits, and all of the vendors were very well attended. After 9 months of planning, it was a great relief to see all of our hard work  pay off for everyone.

By the time it was all over, I was happily exhausted and thrilled to have been a part of it all. But (and every year I have to remind myself) it takes real time, days in fact, to recuperate from the excitement of the event. No matter how much I feel like I need to get done, the simple fact is I can’t force myself to recover.

I’m in the process of trying to figure out what I really need to be spending my time doing, while letting go of the things that don’t matter so much. After my talk with my lady friends, it’s been an ever present thought in my mind.

So between recuperating and re-assessing my priorities, I’m working on getting back to my essence, the core of who I am.

I’ll be back later this week with the inspirational word of the week……..essence.

xoxo Pam

    Great post Pam. I love you! Looking forward to reading about essence. Thank you for listening and caring about all of us enough not to be mad.

  2. Thanks Molly, I appreciate you’re being there. Not just on the blog but in my life as well. Of course I’m not mad that you and the other ladies. I realize that when you say you’re worried about me, it’s coming from a place of love and concern. You’re not the ones who have piled on way too much responsibility. You’re not the ones leaving me no time to fully rest and recuperate. I’ve done these things to myself. As my friends, you’ve done me the huge honor of telling me exactly what I needed to hear. Not because it was easy, but because it was necessary. I appreciate that more than words can say. And I promise I’m doing my very best to get my sparkle back. Not just for you, but for me too.
    Thanks for being my ‘buoy’, my wonderful friend. I truly love you with all my heart! xoxoxo
