when thirty-five began, i considered it a reset button and started a whole new chapter.
i am so thankful that it turned out to be a wondrous new adventure.
this is the year i have finally embraced myself as an artist.
through deep searching and personal commitment, i reached a complete and total acceptance of all that i currently am as a creative being.
i am looking forward to my thirty-sixth year as a time to explore this new relationship with myself as an artist.
in celebration of this incredible shift, a short poem...
Something opens our wings.
Something makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us:
We taste only sacredness.
