I have fond memories of putting together jigsaw puzzles with
my mom. I’ve always loved puzzles and
still do. Working on puzzles, whether,
jigsaw or word, gives me a sense of calmness
yet stimulates the mind, and rejuvenates my creative process.
Over the years, I’ve made it my own tradition to work on a
jigsaw puzzle at the beginning of each New Year. The last couple of years however, I haven’t
had an opportunity to follow that tradition, but I changed that this year. I made it a point to get a new puzzle and
just jump in again, and here it is…viola!
The sacred heart is worn for protection.What better combination of bloodstone and

What a whirlwind it has been the past month.Today I was able to spend most of day
catching up, organizing and cleaning my office.I can see the surface of my desk!! I’m so excited. It feels so nice to have a clean slate again. Even my cat loved it; he was able to sprawl
out on the desk and not get scolded.
Of course, the sad thing is, it won’t last long.Having it all put away just to take it all out
again seems so pointless sometimes doesn’t it!However, I don’t know about you, but having everything put away and clean helps me unboggle my mind and get my creative juices flowing
again . Until the next whirlwind.
