It's May [or where did the time go]

"The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May."- Edwin Way Teale

May is a happy month for me, words like fresh beginnings & renewal sail in through the windows like a cool, welcoming breeze. I look forward to it at the start of every birthday year (today actually) as I review and reflect on the past year.

The words 'possibility' and 'hope' have been on my mind recently too. I'm learning to embrace them as I work through The Artist's Way these past 5 weeks....which in a roundabout way explains why I've been far, far away from my blog. By retreating from social networking and getting rid of too much mind/information clutter, I've gained a little more clarity.

Less is more - YES.

As well as my inner changes, I've made some outer changes too. I cut my hair to a more manageable 'summer months' length, cleared out some closets of things I no longer need, built my own custom work table (with my brand new tool, can't wait to try it out for more projects!) and....I've been working on a very special art project, I'll share soon - promise :>

Does May have a special place in your heart? What celebrations or events do you look forward to in the merry month of May?
