The End or the Beginning?

As my life has begun to become consumed with my various responsibilities, I played with the idea of ceasing to continue this blog. I haven't been able to give it the time that I had originally planned to do at its start. I also found myself writing more about who I was, and the many things that was swirling around in my head as oppose to the artwork that I was creating. To the outside world it may have seemed that the two didn't coincide, but to me...they do. But as I really started to think about things...I need to continue. I will continue. I need to push through even when I don't feel like doing so. So, here goes folks. I will blog about my artwork. I will blog about my random thoughts. I will blog about school. I will blog about whatever I so please to blog about!

Playing Catch Up
I have recently started school. Yes...me...school! I never thought that I would be the one that would attend school after declaring never to return approximately 8 years ago. Although I like to do what I would call "recreational writing", I never became fond of technical writing. You know...the papers that can run 20 pages or so. However, the opportunity to become schooled in something that I always wanted to do, without the paper drama arose, and it was so unlike me to say no.

I said yes...and in return, school has said yes to me. It is showing in my grades, which I am grateful to be able to say. I will have completed my program in March of 09, with my National Certification as a Massage Therapist. Unconventional, yet so me. I am loving it you all. I am enjoying the practical portion the most. Where can you go get an education and get a massage daily. It's a beautiful thing.

The Art Front
Photography: I am going to be photographing a great friend of the families 40th wedding anniversary in mid September. I happened to take some shots at a cousin of mines surprise birthday party last month, in preparation for the wedding anniversary. I am trying to take Buddy plenty of places to make sure that I am up to par.

Jewelry: I am happy to announce that the jewelry in Elle Bee is doing well. My pieces are selling, which is the ultimate goal.

Buttons: I am finishing the piece that I am currently working on this evening. I have only a couple of stiches left to complete and it will be a finished work. It's exciting. I have to say out of the whole series, I draw to this piece the most. It chronicles the relationship/courtship between a man and a woman.

Pearls of Wisdom:
I am still on this whimsical love ride you all. Not that love has come yet, but the idea of the love that awaits me has me feeling marvelous.

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
~Carl Jung

Be Blessed!
