But there have been new beginnings. New worlds of connections. In just the last year and a half, the Internet has opened so many doors: to friends and family far and wide on Facebook; to a storefront on Etsy; to finding teachers and mentors in the fields of drawing and painting, journaling and textile arts through the following of blogs like this. I have taken classes in person through online discovery, and online classes through personal connections, and I am learning how to share my joy in the work through online sites such as flikr and Blogger.
But the main, most essential new connection has been to myself--to a place of dreams long buried but not quite forgotten. A connection to the hope that there is still time. And why not? As long as there is life and hope and intention there is surely time to make dreams real.
So raise a glass with me to toast the birth of Finding Home: A Creative Journey. I hope you will sign up to follow me here. Come along and see what develops.
