Waiting, something I'm not good at but am having to do. I'm reminded of it on my walks around the neighborhood and see the signs of spring. Emerson says we need to develop the pace of nature-patience. That is what I'm going to have to practice these next three days as I wait for Thursday to come and with it the start of An Artful Journey. Being surrounded by 80+ creative souls has me psyched. I'm ready to soak up ideas, enthusiasm and happiness. It has been a long grey winter. As I've packed my supplies, gone over my list checked it twice--, I've been filled with gratitude. I feel lucky. I am fortunate to be able to attend something so luxurious in this day and age and I'm going to make the best of it. I hope you all have a good week.
