From “A Day” back in 2013:
I’m surprised this is my first real post in 2 months. What surprises me most about my sabbatical was that so much had happened in the past 60 days. I normally would have run to my keyboard to update this blog.
It shoulda included losing a job & getting a new one; returning to an old seasonal job and a new understanding about the difference between my vocation (art and writing) versus my occupation in the (given/chosen):
service industry. Also a major trip to Portland, Oregon, that had ended up changing my life! I did end up meeting new friends there, seeing old friends and most welcome, finding a place where I don”t feel like a square peg in a round hole.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, I sold 2 pieces of my art to a private collector (with agreements on at least 4 more) for the first time ever. ♥♡♥
