and it involves beads. On weekday mornings, I get up, and feed the dogs, and make myself a coffee, and go and sit with my beads. I have a bead-on-it board, on a little folding table, near a window. And spread out on the board, at any given time, is a selection of beads.
I’m not making anything fancy – in fact – in the last six months, I’ve hardly done anything but stretchy elastic bracelets. I’m not making them for sale, I’m not making them for gifts. I’m not trying to build a reputation or promote my brand or save the planet or pay the mortgage or any of the other weights of the world. It’s just a quiet, meditative space in my day – making a little order out of chaos, enjoying the colour and weight and feel of the beads. Something simple, before tackling the complex world.
I think, for a lot of us, we take joy in our beads and the simple tasks of sorting, arranging, stringing, organizing, and yes, even the buying of the beads.
