started running, I started having room in my brain for...me. My room of one's own. I started pondering and wondering and planning. Now I am acting.
In June I began a long-term creative project which I am very excited about, but that is all I will say for now. Three of you know what I am talking about. Let's keep it on the down low.
And just last Wednesday, I started painting again. I had not done so in twelve years. Twelve. Above is a teaser, unfinished (small part of a larger canvas). I worked at it for two hours. Then I thought about it for two days. Now I have a vision, a plan.
The kids are both in school, so I have some time. Honestly, it is amazing how quickly my hours are filled up. But, the reality of going back to work in a year is quite the motivation. This is my year (actually, I have just nine months now until the school year ends). I will make the most of it.
