Sashay



The days are definitely getting shorter. I know this for a fact this morning because I got up around 5:30, long before first light. Just now (6:30) is the day taking shape outside the windows here at the chateau. The light is still gray, which could mean the sky is overcast, or might just mean Brother Sun has not yet brought color to the landscape. Color is definitely part of daylight.

Ordinarily you would never catch me up, making coffee, choosing tarot cards and runes, at 5:30 a.m. But today is a big day, the day I move my practice into the studio here at the chateau. There aren't a whole lot of folks who understand why this is such a big deal for me, which is fine. The less drama, the better for my clients and business.

Within my heart, however, this is huge - opening my house to clients, consolidating my life and my work, opening my schedule in ways that could not have happened when I rented office space, well ... this is all for the good, I know it, or at least I believe it.

Onwards and upwards. Tra la.

I have only ever worked from home. Well except for a few years when we rented a building three blocks away. But I was there often into the night. It has some problems, like those clients who figure it out and want to call me about business on weekends when I am trying not to work, or at least working hoping for no interruptions.

On the whole, I like it because I don't have to parcel out my life and time into this or that. I just be and do.

Wish you the very best in your endeavor to help your clients even more! Have a great day :)

Good luck! Opening my home in that fashion would be rather frightening for me-my home is me, it's my sanctuary but also my heart laid open for everyone to see. Bravo to you for taking this leap!

Reya Mellicker said...

Whitney - yes ! But I think it's going to be ok.

Kerry said...

I'm thinking of you today, Reya. I have an inkling that it will be really good. (Don't you like the word "inkling?")

Jo said...

You sashay so well, Reya!

Best of luck in the new space. I think it sounds healing and beautiful and workable.

Your clients will feel very special, as they should.

L'Chaim!

Big change -- so exciting! I can't wait to hear how it goes! :)

Reya Mellicker said...

Steve, your life is a MOVIE. It is.

Yes I love the word inkling. What is not to love.

Thanks for the well wishes! I'm coolin' my heels till it's time to go get the zipcar in which I'll transport linens and my table. There's still lots of organizing to do here, but it's close to being a done deal. Oh yeah!

Reya I am sure you will be fine, I have practised from home for many years, would not do it any other way now. Sending hugs and thoughts of calm your way.

It will be grand!! Best to you and your clients in the new abode...tra la la la!! Sing it!!

I'm really excited for you! I've always wanted to work from home, and yet have always pursued jobs where that would not be possible. Hmmm - perhaps I should look at that sometime.

So anyway, I'm kind of jealous - and excited to hear the tales you will tell (within confidentiality of course).

Ravenstar said...

The best of luck, Reya! Sounds like a very positive move. I'm sure you will be supported in the risk taking.

Thanks for all your great wishes and blessings. I feel good about it. I do!
