Without even realizing it, I’ve been wearing a ring JE gave me.
It was silver. What else is there?
On Friday, I found myself in a store on Queen St. W. looking down into a cabinet at the ring for right now.
A reminder of Wasan Island. It found me.
Made by artist Karen Cameron in Owen Sound—Bella Grey jewellery design.
It will have a season. Then there will be the pleasure of finding another.
When I got home, I took the ring from JE off. It was easy.
There are beautiful pieces of jewellery that must be worn no matter their origin.
But there has to be a letting go. People have seasons too.
I'm consistently surprised by how long change can take.
It happens—sometimes despite me.
"I am made and remade continually. Different people draw different words from me." Virginia Woolf
