Art journal page
A couple of things influenced the creation of this page.
Over the past few weeks I've been doing some inner excavation, digging around among a variety of thoughts and emotions and mostly wondering why the course of my life has never followed a straight line; not even close. I wondered if there is anyone really, who can say their lives mapped out as easy as going from point A to point B and I found myself doubting that. It made me wonder how I've managed to get here in one piece. What keeps me from going under and staying under and it dawned on me that I've gotten pretty good at dodging the sharp edges and cracks that life can toss across my path. I've jumped mud puddles and managed not to fall into some of the deeper holes I've encountered over the course of my years and I figured it out while watching one of my favorite summer shows; So You Think You Can Dance. You see I've learned how to dance sideways. I've learned to side step the general chaos, that often rides in on life's coat-tails. Once in awhile I fall but I always manage to get back up. I'm not always graceful about the process but I can hold my own. I do okay. I won't be winning any contests however.

Next Friday we will be at her orientation and faculty art exhibit and then it's just a few days before her college experience begins. Her excitement is contagious.
So that is all I've got for now. Wishing each of you a fine and wonderful weekend.
