It's Time

It's time!  Time to give my creativity an outlet.  Time to give my soul the space it needs to be!  I'll probably struggle with who I am and what I'm supposed to be when I grow up for a long time, but for now, I'm taking steps to be... well, to be me! It's been a year since I moved up here to the beautiful rolling hills and blue grass of Kentucky! It has been a difficult, sad, painful, wonderful year! Wonderful for the new friends I've made, the old friends I rediscovered, and the friends, back in all the places I've lived that have remained friends despite the distance. Difficult and sad, because I moved away from some extraordinay people that I was very attached to. Painful physically because of the shoulder injury and surgery and painful emotionally because I had to leave my son, a grown man with his own life, behind in Florida! Sometimes my arms just ache to hold and hug him.

I'm taking an e-course called Flying Lessons, given by Kelly Rae Roberts. Kelly is teaching us how to market our art, and how to believe that we can!

Sometimes I feel like Price Charming in front of all those feet of thorny bushes, knowing what something wonderful awaits me on the other side. I just need to build up the courage to make it through the bramble! I just need to figure out how to get through all that mess with minimum fuss and as little blood letting as possible. But get through, I will!"

The course must be working!  I sold this card today!
But that is just the tip of the iceburg!  More about what else
happened tomorrow!

 Life is certainly a journey filled with twists and turns and in my case many moves!  To think that as a young adult I passed on a number of opportunities, including moving to Belgium to work for NATO for 2-3 years! All because I didn't want to move! Fate is definitely a funny lady, or is that funny guy! And so this time in my life is about embracing my creative self and saying to it, go ahead, it's OK to be you, in all your quirkiness!

And I wanted to thank you for your heartfelt comment about my hands. I really appreciated.
Happy flight!
