Yesterday my blog turned two years old! Oh my, how did that happen!? I celebrated its anniversary quietly. It's been such a life-changing experience to record this creative journey. I chose to spend some time reflecting and painting one of my friends who just returned home. Hello spring robin! It was just what I needed... slow down time. I've discovered a great deal about myself and how to make dreams come true, especially in the last year. I've learned to believe in myself and value my work. But I couldn't have... and simply wouldn't have accomplished so much without your incredible encouragement and love. For this I am grateful beyond words, so a little thank you give-away is in the works for the end of the week. It will include several quintessential maya*made items that I am looking forward to sharing with one of you. Today I wanted to give you ALL a little something. This is one of my favorite quotes... I've had it up for years in each creative work space I've used:
There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium... the world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
Thanks for a wonderful two years, friends! Hope you'll join me for another... I think it's going to be the most exciting year, yet!
