 Fall is in the air in Michigan and I am a tad shocked by its arrival.  This summer seems to have come and gone quickly and many things are left undone.

My thought about this is that disruption in my life tends to send me down different paths then planned.  

Some home remodeling has left me feeling disorganized and not able to progress in all the areas I needed to.

Finishing the Presidency for the ISGB is also a big change.  I am so grateful for the opportunity and encouraged by the direction that the ISGB is going.  

For the first time in many years I am not in a leadership position in a glass organization!  I think this is a good thing for my art and I am hoping to spend more time at the torch.  I have many ideas that I need to bring to fruition and I am looking forward to it.

Leaving for Italy in a few days to spend time with creatives and to enjoy some time away from the US.  Everyone I'm traveling with is vaccinated and the EU is strict about  requiring vaccinated only at restaurants and venues.  Masks required indoors for all.  I look forward to the sanity of science based decisions being implemented in more places but for now I will relish my time in Murano, Venice, and Florence.

So that's it for this chapter of Susan and her blog.

To anyone who reads this I hope you are happy and well and pursuing creative activities.
