Wednesday Vignette – Epiphany

Will there be cause for champagne? By the time you see this, we should know…

The Creative Flux

Well, it’s finally 2021! How do you like it, so far? It’s Epiphany, and that means I can tick off another year here in the US. On January 6th, 1987 I moved here for the first time. (I took a 5-year break somewhere in the middle, so I’ve moved here twice.) Hard to believe that was 34 years ago…

Every year, I mark the day, but this year, the air is different. This year, there is a stirring of sorts – it feels as if people have somehow been through enough to have begun having their own epiphanies. They are starting to realize that what we have is worth the effort it will take to keep it. They are still counting votes in Georgia as I write this and, especially in one instance, it’s awfully close, but it feels like the gears are shifting, and it feels like hope. Amazing…

About annamadeit

I was born and raised in Sweden, By now, I have lived almost as long in the United States. The path I’ve taken has been long and varied, and has given me a philosophical approach to life. I may joke that I’m a sybarite, but the truth is, I find joy and luxury in life’s simple things as well. My outlook on life has roots in a culture rich in history and tradition, and I care a great deal about environmental stewardship. Aesthetically, while drawn to the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia, I also have a deep appreciation for the raw, the weathered, and the worn - materials that tell a story. To me, contrast, counterpoint, and diversity are what makes life interesting and engaging. Color has always informed everything I do. I’m a functional tetrachromat, and a hopeless plantoholic. I was originally trained as an architect working mostly on interiors, but soon ventured outside - into garden design. It’s that contrast thing again… An interior adrift from its exterior, is like a yin without a yang. My firm conviction that everything is connected gets me in trouble time and time again. The world is a big place, and full of marvelous distractions, and offers plentiful opportunities for inquiry and exploration. I started writing to quell my constant queries, explore my discoveries, and nurture my curiosity. The Creative Flux was started in 2010, and became a catch-all for all kinds of intersecting interests. The start of Flutter & Hum at the end of 2013 marks my descent into plant nerd revelry. I occasionally contribute to other blogs, but those two are my main ones. For sure, topics are all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blogs!

      OMG, what a day this turned out to be. Good and bad things alike, stateside, if you haven’t heard, given the time difference. Holy moly – check your morning news for a dose of not entirely unexpected madness. (And some good news too, thanks to the people of Georgia and the AG nomination of Merritt Garland – I will keep focusing on those.)

      CORRECTION: I meant ‘Merrick Garland’ – not Merritt. Merritt is a series of Hydrangeas! LOL!
