Home to The Good Life: Part 1

Good Life

I am home. And finally after several days, I feel like I have my feet back on the ground here. It has taken me a bit of time to really return on all levels and reintegrate.

But it feels wonderful to be back in the vastness of my New Mexico homeland! While experiencing a renewed appreciation for this vastness of place, I am trying to remember to also bring this vastness into my daily life. The recent time away from my day-to-day routine here at home has allowed me to reflect on the importance of slowing down. I am acting carefully now as I return to my life here in NM, so that I can maintain the focus, the ability to slowdown and spaciousness that developed during our DREAMING PLACE project fieldwork in Ireland.

As an artist, I realize more and more that setting priorities in life is a necessity. Making choices about how to spend one’s time and how to direct one’s energy must be made every week, every day, even every hour. As I remember to make these choices carefully I give thanks for this opportunity.

So – cheers for choice and cheers for the good life!
