I came to terms with the early spring and today I find that winter is back! These girls are patiently awaiting the arrival of their offspring. The front runner is in the barn reconciling the loss of one triplet, encouraging the second and trying to keep track of the third. The next two are arguing over whose lamb is whose. A young expectant mother is all excited and annoying everyone because the lamb she is looking for hasn't been birthed yet. Sheep!!!
The new art counter is working wonderfully. I may need to actually give up some more form to have function at optimum levels. This is very different for me and really says something because I like things to look nice. But I so want to just make 'nice' and I'm not caring so much about pretty surroundings!
I read a quote somewhere and then had it confirmed by a short video last night that the talent to make great works is there. But the ability to actually make it falls short and we know it is, well, awful. I was there. What I did was not what I envisioned. I was discouraged. Thank goodness I didn't quit. Because it happens to everyone. What is necessary is to stick, and stay; swallow the salt and then savour the sweet taste of a small success that signals the end of the beginning and the beginning of a whole new exciting journey. Last week I had that Aha! moment. Things 'cu licked'. While I'm still learning, things aren't quite so awful. I knew I had arrived when my Rooster commented on my new artistic addiction. :) I've been noticed. LOL I showed him my balance page and asked what he thought. He took a moment to think. He said, yes! VBSigh Because if he got it, I got it!
