Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Dearest Kat, I'm thrilled to hear your good news & deeply moved by your compassionate words. Pete, 'emotional adjustment' just about sums it up. As the days pass, I understand more clearly that it is a continuous process of adjustment & re-adjustment. One might also say: 'Emotional Evolution'. What is very clear is that our lives are in a state of flux & will remain so for who knows how long. The creativity does help. Without it, we would both be in a much darker place.
          Which leads nicely into ChanteyLass' question. Ann spends the greater part of her crafting time making greetings cards. Each card is different & often takes several hours to produce. She attends classes from time to time to keep abreast of new techniques & ideas. Naturally, I'm biased, but I think her work is exquisite; head & shoulders above shop-bought. Ann also makes scrap books for Family members. The scrap book is usually produced to coincide with special life events: 18th birthday, older birthdays, graduation etc..I get involved too, typing captions for the dozens of photos & sometimes processing/editing the photos. The finished article is always considered highly desirable & much appreciated by the recipient. It's become something of a tradition within the Family.
                                       With Love,
                                                      Nigel & Ann.
