End-of-Summer Reflections

As usual, the summer has just flown by.  I spent the bulk of my time in July working and preparing for Chelsea's Sweet 16, but I'm not sure where August has gone!  We did manage to escape to Cape Cod for a week of R&R; it's amazing what a change of scenery and lack of schedule can do for the soul!  Here are a few things I found inspirational:

 Patterns left by the waves on the beach,

Textures of sand and water,

Moments of stillness,

the zen-like simplicity of rocks shaped and smoothed by the surf.

I hope that when school starts in a few days, I'll be able to carve out a little more time for myself so I can turn these inspirations into some new creations...
