the unknown

Internet access will be sporadic for the next few weeks. I’ll be checking in when I can.

Part of me really enjoys that feeling of being homeless for a time.

In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.
William Blake

Here’s to going through those doors.

What will be on the other side?

Yes, what will be on the other side?

We are actually going through those doors more often than we are comfortable acknowledging, but it is good practice to do it formally from time to time.

Best wishes for your move west!

I know what’s on the other side! It’s the other side of the country and I will be there! And I can’t wait to see you!

Good things are on the other side!!!!
Lots of good things!

Safe travels and remember to look up! After having traveled a bit in my life, I learned that you will miss out on things if you forget to look up! Well, at least sometimes, I don’t mean constantly or anything!!

your visit to ontario sparks memories of “the beach” in particular the paper doll magazines from Whitfields. My daughter has taken my “princess and the pea” and Cinderella books”… they bring back some great memories

Hey Keri, I was reading your lasts posts about re-use things and sorry to put it in here but I want to share this with you.

An eco friendly way to get rid off mites is: seed pillows. You can buy them or DIY by sewing cotton or the textile you choose and fill it with seeds.

Hi Keri – I’ve just discovered your blog and am totally hooked. I can’t believe how incredibly generous you are with your advice, and the time you take to write this on a regular basis, given how much it seems you have going on in your life. I know already that your blog is going to become a constant source of inspiration, wisdom and motivation – I’m a fledgling illustrator and after a totally frustrating day of being blocked, as soon as I’ve finished this comment, I’m going into the studio to see what happens.

Thank you for being kind and giving in a world which, to the newcomer, seems very blankfaced and hard of hearing.

It seems you’re moving house – good luck with that. I hope to be done with your archives by the time you return to writing. Take care :)

I love the sense of mystery and magic of that quote. It makes one feel inspired to look for doors where you don’t expect them and peer through. I hope your transition over this particular threshold is going well.
