Rhythm and Pattern to Nature
It’s been very dark and cold in Utah lately. So much so that it’s definitely challenging to go days without seeing the sun. I’ve found that what helps the most is just keeping busy. My head is usually a couple months ahead of my body because of the work I’m doing on Wilma Magazine. It seems odd that it’s not Spring outside when I’ve been focusing on Easter, pastel colors, and the rebirth of nature. If I’ve learned anything from designing and creating a homemaking magazine, it’s that there’s a rhythm and pattern to nature and to life. Each issue and season is so different from the others because of the waxing and waning of activity associated with that time.
It’s a fun challenge to come up with creative content that works for homemakers today but still pay homage to the past. Homemaking is such a dying art with more people focused on lives outside the home than in. I guess that’s why I still cling to it and promote it, even though most people really don’t seem to care. If I can inspire only a handful of people, it will be worth it, though! I’ve been watching a British TV show, Call The Midwife. It takes place after World War II in the East End of London. What’s so fascinating about it is the amount of pride women take in their homes during that time. Even though people are struggling to rebuild their lives and don’t have much after the war, homes are the pride and joy of their lives. It makes you realize that it doesn’t take money to have a beautiful and comfortable home. All it takes is love and caring!
Have a great day!
