It's that time of year when we begin to reflect on all that has happened. When I think of this year and what might be the thread that ran through all the months, it distills down to gratitude. Even in the hardest, darkest times, I found myself being grateful. In the most joy filled moments, I am grateful, and in all the in betweens, too. It is that very undercurrent that is a true pillar of strength for me.
With deepest gratitude, I want say thank you to each and every one of you. Whether you are family, one of my closest friends, or an acquaintance, you are an expression of the many gifts life has to offer. For those of you who have taken workshops with me, purchased a piece of my art, asked me to help in your artisitc dreams, I thank you. For those of you who have been a source of strength, and for those who have allowed me to help you, I thank you.
We are truly in this all together. We each have so many gifts to share and when we do share them, we all get to grow.
I believe my gifts shine brightest when I am in a creative environment sharing what I know, while also recieving the gifts you bring in return. This expands beyond my studio. It happens in the work place, in the day to day running of errands, it happens in the home, it happens in friendships of all kinds. I become more aware every single day of this, and I wish the same for you.
