Looking Forward 2014


This morning I walked past my open green waste bin and the discarded flowers that lay at the top caught my eye.  I threw them out last night and they were rained on a bit.

If my last post was about looking backward, this one is about looking forward. January has been such a lovely month.  I don’t really do new years resolutions, but I usually do a big studio clean, take inventory of my life, and make some plans, set some goals.  That sort of thing.  So in that spirit, I’ll share some of my thoughts/aspirations for 2014:

  • Steer myself out of ruts, and try new things.  Small things, certainly.  Large things, hopefully.
  • Draw more.
  • Stay present.
  • Take some road trips with my son.
  • Read more books.
  • Slow down and notice beauty in unexpected places. See above photo.
  • Write more.
  • Experiment more in the studio.

Looking forward…

    Read your 2013 post! We will be very happy to see 2013 be a past year also. Starting at Thanksgiving, we had one family suicide (no joke), two sudden deaths of friends, four others diagnosed with serious and potentially fatal diseases, my stepson and wife and dog move back in with us while they are trying to finish up building their first home (they are still here and I already have THREE dogs), a freeze that may have taken out four of my FAVORITE plants (and we NEVER have a freeze in Destin, FL). I think that’s it. The blessings were OUR health and some really nice roaring fires in the fireplace that we hardly ever get to use.

    See you in March!

    Love and Onward and Upward!
