New beginnings from old dreams

Ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil, stories have made a playground of my mind.
My favorite pastime was reading and my second most favorite pastime was drawing and coloring.
But of course like so many of us, life took over and I felt that creative ventures were to be delegated to my free time. Of course few of us have much free time.

In the last few years I have experienced so many life changing things and it has brought me to a place of realizing that none of us has unlimited time on this earth. If there is something we really want to do then we need to make new priorities for ourselves.

One of the things I want to find out for myself is where my creative talents lie. I want to give myself the priority that I need to find out what that is.

So I have signed up for a couple of art classes and have decided to share my "journey" with anyone that wants to walk this path along with me. I am hoping that forming the blog will be the catalyst that will light the fire of creativity and keep it burning.

Come along and perhaps we will both enjoy the view.

Making it official

This is a snap shot taken a couple of years ago of me with the famous Dewey Read More Books cat of Spencer Iowa. I was thrilled to meet him before he went to the Rainbow bridge.
