The world turns...

My job ends on the 31st. I admit both relief and anxiety are both warring inside of me. I will be going back to school briefly to gain some certificates in the field I am working in but with that, I am also expanding the possibilities of what could be artistically for me. The road is curving ahead and I cannot see where it goes.

I guess that is part of the journey itself.

A little help from my friends....

Snow Man - Glen C.

Have I mentioned how much I adore Glen? If you haven't read his blog yet, you should. Glen is a fine artist of *cough cough* years. He has done everything from portrait and sculpture to writing a novel. I always find him witty and insightful and perhaps you will too. (The above painting is one of my favorites)

Summer days


It's already August and I feel as though summer is just slipping through my fingertips. I remember a conversion I had with my mother in which she said that once the kids started going through school, it will seem like time is just flying by. I want to freeze time right here. Where my children are young and full of inspiration. Where their world is safe because my husband and I say that it is. I want to see their excitement as they go over the hill of their first roller coaster and cringe when I find out that they want to do it again and again and again. Summer is going by way too quickly and I want the magic clock that makes it stop.
