Wednesday Vignette – some well-earned rest

My turn isn’t quite up yet, but soon. But several friends have had massively busy weeks, that ended spectacularly well. I just met up with three of them to celebrate. After juggling far too many heavy-weight agendas for far too long, enduring short and sometimes sleepless nights – now all is relatively still, and well in their worlds. I saw this resting bumble bee, and thought of the carefree bliss of its chosen napping spot. It made me think of my kids’ early years, when they would fall asleep right where they happened to be, without a worry or a care in the world. So very different from the complexities of the adult world. I wish my friends a long, dreamy, restorative night, where protective darkness wraps around them like the sunlight does this bumble bee, and allows them to recharge. They have all earned a very good night’s sleep. As for me – a few more days, and I too will be on vacation. Wo-hoo!!! I feel like I’ve earned it too. 🙂

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    The adult world is more complex than that of carefree childhood. Thank goodness that most of the time, sleep is still simple. Hooray for your upcoming vacation!
