In one week, McCabe will be starting her Mermaid Warriors class online. I’m all signed up and very excited about this class. This is one of the many steps I’m taking to following my dream. Well, one of my dreams anyway.
The past week was “spring break” around here, though it’s not spring yet. The weather is milder and I’ve seen the sun a lot more. I can’t wait for the weather to be nice enough to go out without a coat and boots.
I haven’t been working in my art journal a lot lately. Lack of inspiration you could say. But I have been writing. I feel the need to write these days so I just go with the flow. Sometimes I write nonsense. Every day I write a poem. Sometimes in French, sometimes in English. I never know what’s going to appear on the page. It’s a surprise even to me. I have all these stories in my head that want to come out so I’m trying to get my thoughts and ideas organized a little at a time. It’s not easy but it sure is fun.
I’ve been doing some cleaning too. A little bit at a time. There’s lots of stuff that I need to get rid of. Books, CDs (still), clothes that don’t fit or that I don’t wear, decorative items I no longer like… LOTS of stuff. It can be scary sometimes. But I will get the job done, not because I have to but because I want to.
As you may have noticed, I changed the name of my blog. Although I do want to focus on the good things in life, I’m well aware that I must also acknowledge the bad things and they might get blogged about sometimes too. I like this new title. It fits. Now, if only I knew how to make banners, I’d put one together that fits too. Maybe another time.
