Yesterday I had a good talk with a life mentor of mine. I find myself speaking about 'being an artist' and not knowing if I still am etc. , she stated the obvious, that I shouldn't label myself. I was an artist before I ever made a single piece of art. I will be an artist if I never make another piece again. I am not what I do. I get it. I don't want to fit into a neat little container and be put away under one category. I need to allow myself to be and do whatever it is that I feel and not get locked into having to be anything. I suppose in a magical world I would have the time money and ability to design buildings and homes. I would spend some time having my own restaurant and being a top chef. I would also have made a few clothing lines and hand bags. Not in this lifetime probably.
At least some creative juices are starting to seep out of me, I have some drawings going and am fiddling with objects for clocks and other new ideas. I like having two or three things going on at once, dipping into them until one of them takes a strong hold and I can run with it. More house visitors this weekend so the my attitude will be tested.
