This morning I was looking thru my old poetry to find something to write on a current collage when the vision of my life just crystallized perfectly AGAIN in my head.
As with so many of you, it is my dream and my ambition to be a full time artist. But is it what God wants for me? Did He open my eyes this morning or was I just wishing? To pursue the dream seems so very selfish (after all, this isn't as noble as MLK's dream!) yet I know I'm better to people when I'm following this path.
Here's what the above journal page says:
hmmmm, maybe I'll go write that on this art pieceI saw again the visionOf how my life should beOf how the art flowed from me onto paper, canvasOf words and paperOf timeless, no, time-free immersion in my artOf a life spent as I've spent only moments until nowOf being me all the time, unencumbered by financial constraints & concernsOf me loving & living my bestOf being a temporary vessel allowing art & wordsto flow thru me
