I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
My desk early Sunday morning cluttered with an odd mixture of stuff. I was trying to catch up over the weekend.as I had several ATC's to complete for swaps. I cut out a piece of the wedding veil remnant to use for texture. The the fairy collage sheet is out to create something that begins with F. The bag of Halloween feathers is a recent purchase. I needed an orange feather for that pink and orange rolo last week and did not have one. BTW, the recipient of that rolo thought I nailed it with that orange game card. That orange paint on the paper towel is from my painting the previous morning. I have a painting practice which I have properly named, Get up.Get dressed. Paint. Saturday mornings I have a regular painting date with my
paints (and coffee). You can click on the tab at the top to see the pages in my painting journal.
Which leads me to some unexpected news: I moved to a new building and am now teaching in an elementary school. A HUGE change for me. I have always taught high school with some middle school mixed in but now I am teaching 6th and 7th grade. Instead of listening for bells to tell me when the end of class is I have to watch the clock. Instead of students walking freely through the halls to their classes I have to line my students up and walk them everywhere. At the end of the day instead of kids rushing to meet buses I now have to escort them one-by-one to their parent who is waiting in their car in the parking lot. Yesterday was my second day and it all feels so overwhelming! You can read about how this all came about HERE.
