reasons why my Friday was pretty great

Work was good. And this job that I had previously quit (read about it HERE), has asked me to stay on part time for a while. This is actually great because I will have lots more control over my hours, I will have time to look for other, better, jobs and I will still have some money coming in so will not have to freak out quite so much about pesky money troubles (which honestly I was beginning to freak out about a bit).

Today I was struck by a bit of inspiration and tomorrow I am going to follow where it leads me. (There will be photos of course :)

I have no torch, and no studio
but I am determined to make
jewelry anyway.

I am also going to find some space that I can turn into a very small studio. I need one. Not having one has helped me realize how important that space is to me. So tomorrow I will make one, however small and imperfect it may be.

I booked a ticket to Hawaii. January 2010. :) Nice.

I have been thinking about what it means to be an artist and have been realizing how grateful I am that so many of those things are a part of my life. It’s brings to my life focus, beauty, motivation and meaning. And though it does occasionally make some things harder, the positives FAR outweigh the negative.

I woke up Friday morning after a good cry Thursday night with a much better outlook and the realization that perfection does not exist. And that even if it did imperfection beats it every time. Imperfection is better because its REAL.

While riding the bus to work on this lovely morning I decided that a person’s expectations in and of life will bring them either happiness or despair.

And since they are so important
I decided to try to fix mine.

PS. happy Friday the 13th! its a lucky day...
