Spring - a time of rebirth, a shedding of layers and the beginning of a new life. 
A time of transformation, from the old to the new.
Sometimes with subtle differences, and sometimes with brand new, bold changes. 

Who we are and who we wish to become,
an accumulation of life experiences,  and shedding of layers,
the unveiling and revelation of our purest, most authentic self.
And then there you are, in full bloom, a spectacular miracle of color and beauty.

Because life is more vibrant, playful, and interesting when we see things in color.

Twist and turn,  flex and bend, holding steady within. Juggle brightly colored balls, wearing different styled hats fitting to the performance.   Stand tip-toed and balance the world on a platter like a ballerina on stage.  Be present and grounded, in the midst of chaos and confusion.

To find the art of balance.................

"Just Do It!"  What an ingenious idea Nike had when they created that slogan.

This is a year of creative sparks and roaring fires. I am pushing out of my comfort zone and into places that beg for more time, more attention, and more of my authentic self.  It's a time of change and transition - out of the places that hold me back and keep me from growing, and into places that nourish my spirit and my soul. Moving into the places that feel more like "home." 

Every day I am reminded that I must keep adding substance to the burning embers in order to keep the fire roaring. And each time I add something new, a million sparks fly, adding more beauty, more excitement for what is to come.

This month I entered my first juried photo exhibit and had one of my two photographs accepted.   I  took a risk and sent in images from my "love of all things old" file.  Moved away from my florals and macro work and decided to play around with some of my other images.  It worked! I am doing my first large solo exhibit " In Living Color" coming up in May, and have arranged more solo exhibits of my work over the course of this next year.  Putting together marketing materials is exciting and scary and fun all bound together.  Making myself more visible.  Taking risks and following my heart's true calling.

 First a step, then a series of steps and eventually a steady run toward "home".  

Very excited to be watching the sparks fly!!!
