deconstruction. construction.




work in progress. home in progress.
deconstruction. construction. painting. broken pipes. debris everywhere. packing paintings. designing promotional cards. sore muscles. taxes. chinese take-out. dust everywhere. planning weekend trip. loads of laundry. date nights at home depot. passing out on the couch. 
getting dirty.  always tea.  finding poetry in the little moments. finding the little moments. 
breathing.

  1. Anca,
    A wonderful quote with some sage advice:
    "When the world is falling apart around you, drink tea."

    The fact that you included "always tea" in your list indicates that all of this will work itself out and you will be fine.

    Love the mixed media piece in progress that you picture in this post...

    1. what a lovely quote, dearest helen!

      for a while i considered naming my blog 'another word for tea'. another work for tea is serenity, another, mindfulness, yet another, connection. there are so many words for tea!

  5. I remember remodeling and painting a mile of 8 inch vintage trim, sawdust in the walls for insulation and findings of 1940's publications stuffed in there too. Excavation, exhaustion, fitting life in, and in the end, after it takes twice as long as you had once hoped, you see your home before your eyes, better, fresh, yours.
