Hills and Valleys

2″ x .5″, dichroic glass and slate

This week has been amazingly manageable. It turns out that when the kids travel, and I only have myself to feed, bathe, schedule and rest, it seems like there are at least three extra hours in the day. Of course, those hours have been for work, but even work feels more restful when I’m not checking my watch for pick-up times and thinking about what to make for dinner.  And yet, the days alone still had their challenges.  The hills and valleys and the twists and turns weren’t as extreme as they usually are, but there were still ups and downs.  The slate in this pendant shows the ups and downs at every scale.  Rub it with your fingers and you’ll feel the bumps.  Look very closely and you’ll see tiny dips and rises in every millimeter.
