Whew. I've been so busy falling behind on an important order I can't even think, let alone blog, but I had an "Aha!" moment this morning.
I looked at some work I've done lately and was knocked over. I had assumed that since I'm busy, not sleeping, hopping on buses to Madison to protest our Governor's proposed bill, working, crying, facebooking and collapsing in exhaustion every few hours that the work I've been doing would be crap.
No such thing.
I looked at the panels I made last week in the midst of chaos and could do nothing but approve. They are good. Really good. So, while they were born in the midst of high dysfunction, they survived to mature into lovely little pieces. Thank you to the muses who show up to guide my hand and who put the perfect paper scrap out of thousands in front of me at the right moment. It's another important lesson...want to create and craft art?
Just show up.
I can't post pictures because my new camera was defective and has been returned. We are waiting for another one to arrive on the scene.
I want to share an old post with you. One of my marriage posts. In it I write about how different Mark and I are and of how he supports my passions, but how I have little opportunity to support his. Well, he is fighting so hard for the people he represents in our state and I couldn't be more proud. I have finally had the chance to support him in a passion and fortunately it is mine too.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the old post because I still think it applies to today. Plus, I still suggest heading down to the library to get the Alchemist on cd...a truly inspiring book to listen to when you work or relax.
