The creative and spiritual journey of a (textile) recycler. . .

I have thought about starting a blog for a long time now. I just couldn’t seem to get started. I thought. . what would I say, what would I do and really . . . . . who would care.

Last year I had the great fortune to witness a ‘happening’. As a spouse at a reunion (I know, groan) I was both an observer and participant. This reunion was attended by some of the most creative and talented people on the face of the planet. Really, no exaggeration! But many were holding onto life long insecurities. They didn’t think they were talented enough and embarrassed to perform in front of each other for fear of . . who knows . . . finger pointing, whispers, laughter, ridicule of some sort for sure. Once it was revealed that many shared the same feelings, the healing began. And I was the lucky one. I got to witness it all and benefit as well.

So, the message is that we all think we are not good enough compared to someone else, but we are. Don’t let your fears and insecurities stop you. We can’t measure our own success by someone else’s talents.

This revelation and the kindness / support of strangers has propelled my creative journey to a place I had given up ever getting to. Tho I thought my creative juices were dried up forever, they have merely been reawakened. Many thanks to all involved in my process, including in-part . . Victoria B, Mrs. W., Charles Mc., Claudia H, Mary B, Cindy G, Sandy B, Traci B., Kat C, and my IAA family. So, thank you. I dedicate this blog to all of you!

List it Tuesday!

Today's list is: Wish List! WooHoo...
That can really get a girls mind going.... 
I gave myself the challenge of 'off the top of my head in 2 minutes'.
Here are the first things that come to mind. I bet I'll be adding more......

My wish is:
for everyone that has passed that I love, to come back, even for just a day
to know what it's really like on 'the other side'
for the time to create, preferably all day and night - every day :)
to be able to execute the creative ideas in my head to my satisfaction
to travel to exotic places
to change my thumb from black to green
for my body to allergies or other health issues
to be able to jump up and dance when my favorite songs comes on
to carry a tune..omg, bad, bad, bad
to never have to worry about finances
to play a musical instrument..proficiently
to understand and enjoy things that I just don't get 
to never have computer problems again.....
....... and never have to talk to call centers around the world
to turn back the clock to a time when life was more fun and innocent

    corny I know, but... peace, love and success to everyone!
