It never fails to amaze me when summer comes to a close and Fall is in the air... The days are becoming shorter and the summer sun loses it's strength at sundown, leaving a crispness to the early Fall/late Summer evening. It makes you want to take long leisurely walks and enjoy the glow of a warm fire. My thoughts turn inward to all I've accomplished in the past 8-9 months and all that I need to do before the year closes in 3 short months. This Fall I would love to see my creative energy take flight and blossom into what I have visualized for the past year. I still have a lot of work to do, but to be honest... I'm very happy with the path I'm on. It will take time and patience to accomplish my goals. It's been a year of big changes for me. Nursing is now a very distant past, and creativity is my definite future. I've discovered some strengths and some weaknesses. I've made new friends and lost some old ones. At 50+ years old, I know that I'm still capable of experiencing "change" in a positive way. It's refreshing, to say the least, to know that life still holds some surprises for me. The seasons come and go like clockwork...that remains the same. It's cold outside but the warmth for my art is growing ever stronger. So bring on the Fall chill!
