Looking Forward To New Adventures Ahead

I made today's earrings the day before my 66th birthday. As I was trying to name the earrings, it occurred to me that the turquoise parts of the lampwork beads looked kind of like eyes. They even have a little air bubble decoration in the center, that could be interpreted as the iris of the eye.
Well, anyway, that's how I saw them, late at night after a glass or 2 of wine... Anyway, my thoughts went to the fact that even though my body sometimes fails me at 66,  my eyes (and heart) are still always looking forward to the next adventure in living this life of mine. The adventures may not be as physical, as they once were. I have some chronic illnesses that I have to contend with.
So I may not be hiking in the mountains or backpacking all over Europe anymore. But life holds many different types of adventures. I look forward to watching my grandkids grow up and being a part of their lives. I look forward to learning more about ceramics, to making new jewelry, to growing older with my husband. I maybe entering into senior citizen land, but I have much to look forward to.  So the turquoise "eyes" in these earrings symbolize looking forward to all the adventures to come. What are you looking forward to?

The Looking Forward earrings will be in my shop later today or tomorrow. Thank you, as always, for visiting Earrings Everyday.  I'll be back in two weeks.
