Four years ago this morning I woke up to eight years of memories gone. In an instant life changed. Since that time I have been working to reconnect, relearn, and remember. While the journey to today has not been easy or without extreme pain and frustration it has been insightful. I have learned so much about myself and the life I want to live. I am learning to let the little things go, to enjoy and celebrate the moments that are fully mine.
This anniversary has been weighing on my mind throughout the year. It isn’t just another year gone by, four years opens the window to the possibility of another loss. Since these losses started almost twelve years ago they have happened every four to five years. I pray that this time I can break the cycle, but if I can’t I wanted today to be about something other than the loss….
So today I am launching my new website, blog, and shop! Jackie M Wood Studios is now open for business.
It has taken many hours to get to this opening and I am thrilled to say it is ready. You will find a shop on the new site that will sell my original works (a prints shop will be coming soon). You will find a gallery where new work will be showcased. You will find a blog (for those following this blog, my story will continue on my new site and I would love to see you there) where I will share my art journey.
Head on over and check it out. Enjoy your time there and let me know what you think.
Thank you to everyone who has followed this blog and shared the past four years with me. I look forward to continuing our conversation at jackiemwood.com
