Glory be to God for dappled things…
…All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
—Gerard Manley Hopkins
EveryDay Bloom began as a lifestyle blog… celebrating the homemade, the repurposed, the done it ourselves. I created it wanting to inspire, hoping it would be beautiful.
Ah, Beautiful. Hmm.
Time passed. I abandoned my blog for a while, feeling disenchanted with my expectations, both of my blog, and of my many (largely unfinished) projects. And other things. But I missed writing. I missed telling stories. And I find I still want to share whatever beauty I can discover or create. I may be nonsensical in my breadth and depth of projects, but I must have at least a couple. Creating things feeds my soul. So now, this blog will be a record, a tale told in passing snippets– of life however it comes, or whatever I can make of it. Like a journal, with doodles. I’m hoping it will eventually culminate in proof of goodness amidst the tangle of life’s less than glamorous reality. Proof I crave for myself and my children, and other dearly beloveds.
