"I've lived a good many years and many of my years have been good! They have a saying nowadays, "Don't sweat the small stuff, because it is ALL small stuff". I like those words. The concept however, is nothing knew.
I am fortunate to have lived a long life of calm acknowledgement of "what is", mixed up with a burning curiosity about "what could be", a strong desire to follow my heart, express my passions and topped up with a generous dose of belly laughs.
When you must crawl out of the room on your hands and knees, tears streaming down your face while laughing so hard that your cheeks ache, you ARE living your best life! Rinse and repeat!"
"Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.” – Theodore Roethke "
Enid exudes serenity and aplomb. Her white curls (getting a little thin on top) are made of locally sourced welsh sheep's wool. Her paper clay face is etched and careworn.
Her handmade wool felt cloak is resplendent in rich natural brown welsh wool overlaying golden yellow curls of dyed locks with red and orange accents.
Her necklace is bronze coloured seed beads with an antique gold SUN pendant. Her body is fashioned using gold wool melton and wood, amply padded.
Enid's arms are laden with treasure. A large natural basket contains real moss and hand painted paper flowers. A handmade wool felt nest cradles a RED JASPER semi precious stone. Her walking stick is covered with moss. Jack, her familiar CAT, has come along for the ride.
