Art Every Day Month – 2017 – day 1

Wylde Women's Wisdom: Persist. Persist. Persist.

I have been doing AEDM for many years.  Some years better than others.  As luck would have it, I actually have time to blog today, and so am going to do that too, and post it next to the original picture (copy shown here) in my journal.  I thought I might finish the altered book I started (I can’t remember 2006?  can that be right?) for AEDM and have added to yearly.  I may yet through some pages in, but mostly I think I’ll stick with my new journal.  I am also journaling in it as I am supposed to for an on-line writing class I am taking.  One year, I may also do NaNoReMo – but I don’t want to commit to too much and then not do any of it.

Art Every Day Month – 2017 – Day 1

Today’s picture is inspired by two Pinterest pictures I’ve saved.  It makes me think of a blank slate.  Today, after these past 3.5 months of husband badly hurt and healing, moving, getting the other house ready to sell, dealing with a sale I thought was done with my cottage only to have the buyer take off to Utah….well, there has been a lot going on.  And some of that has been me shoving a lot of “stuff” down where I can’t feel it.  So perhaps it isn’t a blank slate I’ve been handed, but rather a me that’s been totally obliterated in order to deal…but the end result is that there is a space opening, if I can to pay attention to it, to redraw a whole lot of my life.

I’m going to pay attention to it.

I’m starting a lot of things from scratch: my real estate business – I am going to attend a lot of my Broker’s training offerings (RE/MAX One is outstanding in their agent support.  Why couldn’t I have found someone like this to work with when I was young enough that I could have wanted to take it and run with it.  Now I want to mosey…and that’s ok too) in the next two weeks, I am going to really work at doing the work for my journaling class – after all I took it to jump start my long silent jounaling habit, as well as this blogging habit.  It hasn’t been a habit for way too long.  I am coming down the homestretch on 2 other writing classes that I have very much enjoyed but think I will hold writing to one class at a time for a while.  And art….here AEDM and today I signed up at the local community college for their ceramics course (audit) and I can use the clay studio, which makes up for selling mine.  And I won’t have clay dust everywhere.

So today is a bunch of firsts (AEDM, PGCC registration, refashioning my life) and I am really deleriously happy for the first time in a long while.  Things can unfurl in front of me and I can chase after them, and that feels good.
