This growing and changing process is uncomfortable at times, to say the least. One of the hardest parts for me is that although I know that I am not the same person I was when I last posted on my blog about 6 months ago, it is hard to express what I have experienced on the inside; thus my absence from blogging for such a long time.
I decided to post a few pictures of what is going on, on the outside, with a few snippets of some of my experiments-in-the-works. I am still discovering my creative style, so much of my time is spent learning techniques through workshops both online and in person. Each photo represents a small bit of each unfinished piece.

I was thrilled this summer when our son, who is now 26, played several of the songs he wrote. For many years, I must admit, I felt rather frustrated with him because he never played a whole song and I wondered if he ever would.
Allowing myself to develop my creativity has given me new insight on what was going on all of those years when he was just playing little bits and pieces - lots of growth and change from the inside out! I love this song that inspired this post http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPrK3FP9Yrs . . .
