Life doesn't always turn out the way we expect or anticipate no matter how well we think we've planned or how 'right' the path appears at times. I haven't written anything on the blog in the last few months because I haven't quite known what to say and I seem to have been flailing about in circles, stuck if you will. I know where I've been, but my life has been turned upside down and I no longer know quite where I'm going. I've always been one to embrace change but this upheaval definitely left me wondering if a clear path would ever emerge again. I can't say that it has, but it's time to get on with the business of living again.
I've spent the last few months moving, starting a new job, doing some writing and planning a few new creative projects. It's given me a lot of time to reflect and a lot of time to think about where I want to go from here. I still don't know exactly where that is, but it's time to start peeking around the corner and try to find out. It's time to get out of this funk and get back to the things that keep me centered and fuel the creative fires.
On the creative front, I'm excited about the projects on the horizon. I'm finally finishing up a series of paintings that I started last summer and later this week I'm starting some collaborative paintings with another artist. I'm also working on a new collaborative photography project that I'm hoping to kick off in August, which will have it's own separate blog and involve other local photographers (email me if you're in the Denver area and have any interest in participating). And after 20 years of talking about it, I'm starting to write the book that I always knew I was meant to write.
So I'm back and anxious to get back to blogging and sharing whatever it is that comes next in this thing called life.
