|Source - my book shelf - my camera. It's all about me (so I'm told).|
I hauled it off the top shelf - I needed a step stool to reach it; had to dust it off and oil the spine - it’s been a while since I cracked it open.
Yesterday, I had a moment.
You know the moment I’m speaking of - we all get them. It’s the one where you suddenly realize you’re missing something and want to reclaim it, or at least see if it’s still alive.
You stop what you’re doing and go hunting, soul searching as it were; you find what you’re looking for because it wasn’t hard to find once you stopped doing the chicken dance and put your mind in neutral for a few minutes. It’s amazing what appears when the dust settles and the din fades.
As of September 19th I will be revisiting a passion from my past.
It’s time to sharpen my HB pencils, dulled from years of neglect; soak my brushes, hardened to resemble little clay hedgehogs; and scrape the layers of denial and regret off the blank pages of my sketch book; these things have been patiently waiting for this day to arrive.
I am taking a Creative Drawing class...and I am stoked!
The class is eleven weeks in duration, two and a half hours each class, just enough time for me to make a good mess and laugh as I watch my world unravel!
Are you asking yourself, "How does she do it - writing, wallet making and now art classes?"
Well, they are all related and the art will be helpful for my "wallet sketching" which is, how should I say, in need of help! And, I think it's a great release for some of my pent up energy...it's this or going to the gun club and shooting up some innocent paper targets! I think this art class might be a better use of the paper, right?
I will keep you posted as to my progress! (aka natural disasters - hahaha)
Ahh...I can hardly wait!
Have you had “a moment” you want to share? I’d love to hear all about it!
