The older I get the more multi-dimensional I feel about myself. My art is all over the place and it shows no sign of focus on one particular subject. I admire people who are able to focus on one particular specialty like a sport, hobby, job, etc. and get really good at it- like the Olympians. But, I will never be that kind of girl - alas.......but I will have stuck my feet and hands and mind in a hundred different passions that made my life an incredible kaleidoscope. Like that beautiful toy, I find that all my interests begin to overlap the other and enhance the process and the design is ever evolving as my years roll round and round in the hands of God. Sometimes you want to stop the kaleidoscope and hold on to certain perfect symmetry or that moment in time, but only a breath can change the view -and there you go again. I'm not going for balance anymore. For me there's no such thing. But I do believe I'm achieving a measure of wholeness and contentment with the skin I'm in. I realize a creative mind is never at rest. It's always changing- there's a new design everyday within the brilliant tunnel of my own kaleidoscope because I'm handled carefully, yet often by the Master's hand. You can't really argue with what He's doing...you just roll with Him until He lays it down.
