Petal Pushers

And sometimes I find myself wondering how I got to this place, how if I had been any different, any less aware, I may have missed where I was supposed to be - Meagan Morrison

Good Evening My Darlings,

Finally I'm able to return to you. Thank-you so much for your patience, support, kind words of encouragement, and all the lovely tweets I've received these past few weeks. Selfishly I've been savoring every last minute of being a student. More than anything I've just turned a bit inwards, become very quiet, in order to prepare for the next move. I thought for sometime about what my next post would be and I really wanted to do something different. I knew my class drawings from the past few weeks had a certain delicate quality to them and I wanted to mirror that with a theme. The truth is I've been feeling a little fragile lately with all the changes I'm undergoing.

It suddenly made sense to title this post Petal Pushers, and to incorporate the tiny petals of Tomo's dress into the background of each piece. I related to the petals, their elegant demeanor, and yet complete vulnerability to life and time. I feel this chapter of my life coming to a close. I know these petals must fall, a new season awaits, and I will grow to be even brighter, even stronger. I really can't help but wonder about the universe, about how everything really does fall into place. I can remember sometime over the winter break exchanging thoughts with you all about fate and destiny. Too many things have happened to me since January to not believe in destiny. Most importantly I believe in myself, believe in my vision, and know the rest will follow.

I wish you well my loves and hope that Spring is greeting you with plenty of inspiration.

All my love,
Meag xx
