i painted a picture today.
it is a painting of me.
it is not sophisticated. it does not reveal genius or really even talent.
but it felt so good i have decided to paint for myself anyways.
i wish i could figure out how to download pictures from our new camera onto the computer- then i could show you, but i am proud of myself because i painted for 20 minutes while the baby slept and i realized that the reason i HAVENT been creating is because the way i can create now is really a lot different from the way i could create before- and now i just have to create in the way that fits into my life.
in little pieces and time frames. little bits eventually add up into something bigger.

heres to painting.

different thangs.

i think i am going to take this blog in a different direction.

i think i am ok with that i can hang my hat on different hooks, not just the writing hook.
i can identify with all the different creative things i do.
i dont have to beat myself up for calling myself a writer but -gasp!- NOT writing.

stay tuned...
