12/30/14 Notes to Myself:
As the year comes to a close I realize how
much courage it takes to live on the
"precipice" of life. It takes even more
to "jump off" and sometimes I don't want
to. But I can't experience living any
other way. So I'm learning how to fly!
I know I am on a journey of coming to
"edges" where I can't turn back. I must
continue to strengthen my wings.
Jumping off the precipice is how
I get stronger.
Each time I jump, I realize I am lifted
to face new fears and challenges. My courage,
faith and trust expand.
In many ways this blog has been a "jumping off"
point for me. A risk much like my decision to
pursue my love of painting. And so it continues
Initially I hoped for this space to be a
creative extension to my primary work
as a painter. I've meandered around with
what that might look like over the past
year. Sometimes providing tips
and insights but not feeling like I've
really found a home with it all.
I like the idea of Notes to Myself. They
may be sporadically articulate but there's
no guarantee. That's more like me anyway.
