I love Fall. Too bad it refuses to stick around. We’ve had some pretty warm temperatures for this time of year which is not bad, per se, but it would sure be nice to get some Fall weather around here before we dive into winter. But strange weather aside, you can tell Fall is really here because this is our season, for the business. Mark’s been baking crazy amounts of cookies – sometimes in the thousands daily, we’re stocking up on supplies for the holidays and booking December markets. This is the time of year when he rarely gets a day off, not until December 24th.
Oh friends, I tweeted something a few weeks ago that I have to remind myself over and over. There seems to be so much instability in the air, so many things that have fallen through for me recently. In this shaky economy I can only rely on my creativity, my motivation, resilience, and determination to succeed. I can’t be paralyzed by fear and the unknown. In that sense, we are controllers of our own fate. We have to make things happen for ourselves.
To that end, I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful comments, emails, support and encouragement about the Mixed Race Project. Thanks to those who have shared their own stories. I have read through them all, twice even. There have been some questions about the project and I will try to answer them soon. I am also working on getting a few more stories up, but first…sleep….
