Destined to be the last snow of winter, today I'm left wondering what is on the horizon! Winter was a time of much spinning my wheels. Trying to get clear on a new direction and feeling the fear of expanding what was possible for my art and life. Now that it's Spring I feel myself bursting with renewed vigor...project ideas coming in droves and my only limitation is the time in which to get things done. If Winter was about a kind of hibernation and rest from the typical creative hype, then Spring is when ideas begin to burst forth like flowers bursting through the fresh thaw and out into the sunlight.
I'm grateful to Winter and kind of sad to say goodbye. But the show must go on and it's time to get busy as a bee coming awake in the hive. This spring I'll be dabbling in some quilting because it sounds like a soothing meditation for my overactive mind. I'll also be working on a little class on Expressive Drawing that, by the looks of it, will be a sure test of all I have learned thus far. Translating the things I do second nature into a sort of method to share those practices with others is a new interest of mine. This summer I'm turning (gulp!) 40 years old and it's time to really share what I have learned.
What is on the horizon for you in your creative practice? What are those ideas that have been whispering on the wind, gently trying to get you to stop and take notice? I invite you to step into courage and give those ideas wings, for the only way to fail is to have not tried at all. If there is one thing I've learned from my life and creative journey it is that I do not want my life to pass by while I keep my best work deep inside. This is a call to action! Rise up and give your dreams some energy and they will take shape right in front of your eyes.
