Hello World

Easter morning 2008

I dare say, spring has arrived in the mountains of colorado. I dare say because it could very well dump 2 feet of snow tomorrow. "it" the fickle mountain weather goddess that rules my world.

in the meantime i will rake the bare patches of yard, poke the flower bed in search of life, plan my summer planting and stuff sweet peas into the frozen earth. i have learned if you don't plant the peas BEFORE the snow has stopped they won't do their glorious thing that makes my summer worth the wait.

My internet browsing is becoming quite the pastime. I am finding oodles of inspiring blogs and sites, galleries and handmade creatures that are quite honestly making me feel like i have alot of friends out there...friends i haven't met but are sure to know.

I feel inspired , excited and aware of the fact that i've got some self educating to do. My ideas are running into road blocks.

Things to learn:

The Art of Blogging. posting, layout, what's a feed???

Computer Graphics. photoshop (oh my go...the possiblities!)

web design, layout, setting up a gallery, linking to the blog etc.

Selling on line. product development. $ thats what i really need.

Cultivating time out of a busy mom life to do my thang
I read a most butt kicking article about artist procrastination in Anahata's blog
http://www.anahataart.com/ "concepts" (can I just do that? list someone's site???oops i

just did, at least with good intentions - please feel free to comment if otherwise - i'd hate to step on anyone's toes!)

Anyhoo, the piece entitled "grain of salt" really illustrates the freaky process of creation and the doubt demons t that do everything they can to stop you from breaking through to yet another layer of knowing thus evolving into a higher being.

The demons of Inaction - like a bunch of school yard bullies, you face 'em straight on and they lose all their power.

It's crucial to keep moving, keep scribbling, smearing, pasting, ...the work will reveal itself.
