The Second Act

It's been over 2 years since I posted anything to this blog. I considered deleting it entirely, since it's already gone to seed, but somehow that just didn't seem right. I've been thinking a lot about where I am in life, what I want, and where I want to be. I've recently reconnected with some long buried dreams which are taking me in a different artistic direction from where I've been going with my greeting card business. My focus has shifted to singing and performing, and I'm working on a one-person show.

As I was thinking about what my new focus might mean to my card business, it occured to me that this blog could be a space where I bring all aspects of my creative life together in one place for exploration. Whether it's posting about my handmade creations sold under the banner of my card business, or writing about the workshops I'm taking or the shows I'm performing in. It's all part of my artistic expression, all aspects of who I am.

I can't seem to articulate the thoughts that are running through my head at the moment, but I feel like I'm on the brink of some significant shifts and positive changes. As I embark on the second act of my life, I want to nurture the seeds that I planted in the first act, help them to grow, bloom and thrive. Maybe this space can somehow play a role in that. I guess time will tell.

Spoken so beautifully Norman.
I understand your thoughts completely. I can connect with your thoughts, and can't wait to see what you do next.
