One year ago today.....
.....I ventured out into a cold frosty morning.....
.....off on a journey.....
.....that I was sure, but unsure of.....
......many times along the way wishing I was home in my warm little nest. Because at approximately this time a year ago, I was in having a total hip replacement.
While we all have been agog at the weather THIS year, it was about the same last year too. I remember shivering in the cold when I arrived at the hospital, then walking in and smelling the heavenly scent of freshly brewed coffee.
Leave it to me.......a coffee memory!
And that brings me to this morning, as I sit with a warm cup at my side, pecking out the 600th post here on El Milagro and wondering how time passes so darned fast.
Either I have a lot to say or a lot to blither about! (most likely the second! LOL!) I now have 147 followers which I never thought would happen, I don't blog as often simply because I have been swamped with work, I have met the nicest people (and a very nice, if not ornery, BUG) and I am hoping that in the new year I will have more art and less filler.
I have no apologies for posts filled with photos; having my photography back again is fun and helps fill the creative well as I deplete it at warp speed. I would, though, like to have more of my art on here simply because it would reflect the fact that I have rearranged my schedule to allow more art time. If I have a resolution--and I might add that I never make them--it will be that.
More time for art.
More time to spend in the studio creating.
More posts with art photos and maybe even a few tutorials again.
I had wanted to have a give away in conjunction with this post, but hey kiddies, I am up to my ears in finishing up details on work so maybe there will be a giveaway after the New Year starts; a just because, welcome 2011 type thing!
The church hanging that has gone on forever gets it's hanging sleeve today and will be done.
A piece of art I had to work on at the same time with a possibility (not probability) of inclusion in a new book is finished except for the photos and artists statement--ACK!--and then will be sent off into cyberspace.
Sometimes I have to take a serious look around and see all I have accomplished since this time last year, and you know, overall, I am very happy. I'm going a mile a minute and doing what I love and what more could anyone ask for?
Thank you to all who have come along on this crazy journey called my blog. I have to admit there are times I wonder why you read, but I'm not complaining!!!
Here's to 600 more.......or just to good art, good friends and good times! ;-D
