I’m starting today and unsure of where I want to go. I have a life that is chopped up into smaller worlds and the thought of them colliding, is daunting. I thought I wanted to blog on my profession, but I don’t think so now. I am an artist by birth…must make things, make marks, colors, shapes, forms of all kinds. I want to develop this side of me and enter a community of like-minded people.
This is Mimsey…I took this photo New Year’s 2009 just before she turned 14. Today she is quite frail and we know we are loosing her. I am perhaps moved to begin this blog now in honor of her. In many ways she has been a force in helping me be more of the person I want to be. I have many roads to go still that will not include her by my side, but in my heart. I imagine there will be others after her, but she is my first. She taught me how to love, how to accept, and how to forgive. I do not plan to write very much all the time, but to focus on my artwork and creative development. Today, as I start here and I begin to let go of my cock-eyed, half-blind, fully deaf mongrel I write in honor of her. If you choose to join me on my journey I welcome the company. I welcome any feedback and hope to connect with others on this virtual cloud. I do not promise to be light and cheery, I view the world in it’s full spectrum of colors and their many tones and shades.
