Images...from the Rabbit Hole....


I've had this saying in the Shop...for at least 14 years...I always tell people...it Must be done...in this order....
Easier said...than done....

As I walked through the Rabbit Hole....this afternoon... many things...became perfectly clear...
First...if the Little Shop...could speak...it would say..."Ain't no Sunshine...when she's gone"....I was overwhelmed...with sadness...
When I approached the Garden Gate...the Beautiful....nearly 200 pound statue...of My Angel...was face down...on the ground....as was a heavy iron jack...how...could this be?
 This has happened, one other time...Iron Fence was down...and several heavy pieces...on the ground...while, light, paper containers, sat perfectly upright....on tables...strange...
It made my Heart....Heavy...to see the Angel...down....it truly did...
I tried to get her up, on her pedestal...to no avail...
I'll get help, tomorrow...
The Music...the hand selected...most perfect...'Rabbit Hole' music....that always plays...in the shop...to greet...all who enter...was silenced...
{I leave it playing...always...I can't stand...walking into the Shop...without it....it feels...dead...without it's voice... }
There were gaping holes...where I had ripped things out....for the show....
Very....very...sad....
Tho, I only spent moments...in there today....many things have become....very...very...clear...
as I make final decisions...I'll post them...
But...I can't have this...
The Little Shop...has become as Broken, as I....
I saw myself...there...a reflection...of myself...
I don't like...what I saw....
Changes...they are coming...
cause...
There Ain't no Sunshine....when I'm Gone....
This was a Pet...Mouse...I had tamed...he just appeared...one day....we became friends...Peg took this image of him...many...many years ago...I fed him Biscotti...in this broken tea cup...every day....he died...several years ago...and is buried...behind the shop... he was much...loved...

Was your angel vandalized or was it a natural happening?

Thanks...Barbara...
I was pretty taken back...
Like...everything...was dead...just...dead...
I'll breathe Life....into the Little Shop...and...it will, me...as well...
We feed...off each other...I can see...
I have always leaned on it...but...can see...plainly...It...needs me...as well...
Love, to You...
