History Lessons

We add to our history every day of our lives.  That history might not written on pages made of paper, but it can be found in our hearts.

Looking back on the events in our lives may help us to define who we are today or who we may become in the future. By tracking events, we may even see a pattern or a path.

Here is a picture of my 1 and only art gallery show at the Denver Children’s Museum. It did not draw big crowds, family members did not pour in to see it, but it was FUN!!!!  It drew in LITTLE crowds… tiny people.  All the art was about 18 inches above the ground!  It was all about “Fairy Tales”.  My painting was titled, “The Princess and the Pea”.  It is still one of my most favorite fairy tales.  This show was key in my journey to discover what I liked doing and that was illustrating for kids!

What history will you write on your heart today? Where is your path leading you?  Sometimes you have to rise above the mucky muck to find it.  The world is full of mucky muck, but there are always grand adventures around the corner!

“Let’s sit upon a cloud today or hop on a bird and fly away! “

 

 

 

 

Wassa Madda With Me?

I am always changing things around, cleaning up, redoing, shifting, repainting, reorganizing, stacking and filing.  In the last two years I have made an addition to these behaviors.  I am now getting RID of things. My husband’s remark?

“She is giving away everything that’s not nailed down!

Of course this is not completely true.  I have not gotten rid of HIS things yet. HA!

For some reason it feels like everything in my house looks as OLD as the hills, the paintings, furniture, dishes, towels, lamps… EVERYTHING!

Perhaps it is because all of our kids have moved out and we have more time to stare at the stuff in our house?

Well, the stuff is GOING!  I can almost hear my belongings shaking in fear, thinking to themselves, “Am I next?”

Ha ha ha heee hee heee (evil laugh), YES!
