I create and I connect. I create designs for Samunnat, I connect with people who support us and buy beautiful Samunnat jewellery. I create my own art; I create and connect through classes and articles. I want to create and connect with clarity and abundance. So I am making some changes to my website to do that.
The regular visitor to this blog (and may your god bless you!) may have noticed some of these changes! Like the vanishing comments! (I think that is fixed now.) Or the challenge to subscribe…still working that one out!
In an attempt to embrace a growth mindset and become more independent, I am doing an online course for artists who want to create their own websites. To say I am not naturally gifted in this area is a massive understatement so it will be a testament to Susan Lomuto and the patience of Cynthia Tinapple when I can finally think For now, I’ve done it. Unlike most website designers who no doubt have mantras like Beautiful website, Beautiful experience or We develop Smart Ideas mine is No-one will die if you press this button.
So, bear with me while I tweak, explore, press wrong buttons, discover new strengths and skills and create and connect in another way. And feast your eyes on these babies: my personal flyer and business cards and the flyer for the magical Colourful Journey! Very exciting!
It is that time of year again when I begin to think about our Colourful Journey in November. Bishnu and I have never advertised as such and so far, nearly all the travellers have come because they’ve liked what they’ve heard from past trippers! The right people always seem to come. Each group has been special. And no two journeys have been the same.
And from this point on I had a post already written and was just going to add photos. But then I received an email from one of last year’s travellers that made me think Shut up Wendy and let some one else say something! So I will:
…although I had been to Nepal many times, this was the most exhilarating experience. I travelled with interesting women, who shared their lives with each other, found out what fascinates them and keeps them going. Their vitality, their tolerance and humour rubbed off and I gained new insights and understanding. I had fun, found a new sense freedom and achievement, and realised that age is not a barrier to new opportunities.
Then there was the journey itself. It was certainly a most colourful journey, the colours of the landscape, the brightness of the clothing and the opportunity to meet Nepali people was a unique feature of this trip.
This trip took us out of Kathmandu and helped us appreciate some of the difficulties the terrain itself presents and the resourcefulness of many inhabitants...
If you think this sounds like it could be your sort of trip, get in touch with me now! You can read more about the trip here and here. If you think you know someone who would love this trip, send them this post!
(Thanks to Carol and someone from 2012-could even be me-for photos!)
