Limitations live only in our minds.
But if we use our imaginations,
our possibilities become limitless.
The more I art
(as a verb, invented by Janne)
the more I realize that everything is possible.
Now I just have to figure out what I want.
I've been saying that over and over lately because
artfest kind of turned my world upside down.
i thought i knew what i wanted.
i thought i wanted to make my fortune doing what I love: making art.
But, when I got a little time and space to think about it at artfest...
i don't think that's what i want.
if i had a million dollars...
i would keep my job, part time.
i love my job.
i teach kindergarten 2-3 days a week with the best partner in the world.
i read and sing and paint and encourage and get hugs all day long.
and it's one of the most important jobs in the world.
and i feel about teaching kindergarten,
the way I feel about creating.
I feel like it's where i am supposed to be.
Like i was made for this.
plus it makes me shower
and iron my clothes
and feel like a real person some days.
In my search to find out what I want in my art explorations,
i have to start with what i don't want.
and i don't want what i thought i wanted...
when i consider trying to make a living creating art,
i think i could pursue it
if I put everything I had into it.
i don't want to work that hard.
i don't want to have to make art.
i don't want to have to travel.
i want to get paid for my time.
i don't want art to be another obligation,
but an outlet.
so now, maybe the answer lies in knowing what I don't want.
or maybe it's okay not toknow
just to wander
So, what is it that you want out of this artful life?
Is it what you thought you wanted when you begna this adventure?
What have you learned.
I really want to know...
