I guess I just needed some time to cocoon this year, but I'm looking forward to 2014. I feel like something has shifted in me - something good. I am feeling hopeful and ready to do some things to infuse joy into life. It isn't that there hasn't been joy this year - just that it has just happened rather than purposeful joy. I like making it happen. I like thinking about making it happen.
Art will be an important part of recovering my voice. I started caring what everyone was going to think instead of appreciating the process. It isn't really about the product ultimately - it is about the process - creating, exploring, discovering. I used to find that with words, but right now, colors and images are calling to me.
This is good.
