It’s all about the New Year

Art, Babble 1 Comment »

I’m back! Did you miss me? My mantra this year, is simply, it’s a new year. New beginnings, new days, new life.

I have struggled with a lot of issues these past few years. I won’t go into the details, just trust me on this. It hasn’t been pretty. Now, having said that… it’s a new day, it’s a new year, it’s a new beginning!

This year I resolve to be resolute with my resolutions. The most important resolution and goal, is to get my art studio built. I miss having a creative space, and as art has re-entered my life, I want to nurture it. I have lots of ideas using Zentangle and must have the space in which to create. The couch and kitchen table no longer satisfy my thirst for artistic expression. I am hoping the birthday fairy godfather will wave his magic wand and help my dream come true. In the meantime, I dream and scheme.

As the new year begins, I am determined to blog more, make healthier choices, and above all, be happier. Won’t you?

It’s all about life…

So much for a weekly, let alone daily, post about life in the day of me. It’s been crazy. I haven’t really had a whole lot to say either.

Here it is a little over three months after my last post. More life has happened. I remained jobless since October 1, 2009. That has totally sucked. I’ve picked up some freelance and barter projects, but nothing significant that I can support myself on. It has totally grated on me to be stuck in this position.

Had to put down the two old horses. That wasn’t fun, but it was necessary. Boukie went down and couldn’t get up. That sucked. Several weeks later, it was clear that Louie was languishing after the loss of his buddy. I love my Vet and his people, and my good friends Lori Allen, Kathy and Jeff Hoffman, who all helped me with this huge task. Thank you all for both your physical and moral support.

OK. It’s not all doom and gloom. There have been a ton of bright and uplifting spots along the way. In March, there was all the preparation for the annual Sunrise Ridge Horse Driving Trial. I’m responsible for the program and sponsors. That alone is nearly a full-time job. The event took place in April this year.

In May, I got to attend the Certified Zentangle Teacher conference in Massachusettes. Had a blast, met some creative people and made some truly wonderful new friends. It was good for networking, too. This was truly a turning point in my life and as one new friend told me, “life changing.” She was not kidding. It has been life changing, and as a result, I vow to be more diligent in posting on a regular basis now.

Because I do have life in my day, I hear it calling my name. Until my next post, HAVE A GREAT DAY!
