Anywhere


I have discovered in life that there are ways of getting almost anywhere you want to go, if you really want to go.

Yes- if you're not doing what you say you want to do, it's prabably because deep down, you don't really want to do it!

I just read this out loud to my husband who wants to move back to Rhode Island more than anything. I see the things that are stopping him, but does he? Even if I point them out in a kind way, he still needs to see them when he's ready to see them. But then when he does, do I give up everything and move with him? I think I'll be okay. I'll do my art wherever I go. But still, I worry a bit.

stephen- yes and daunting at times!

studio- How nice that you shared this with your husband. I agree, we only hear or see things when were open and ready. I can see where you would worry, moving can be scary and wonderful! But, I think it's harder as we get older. I sometimes think about moving back to the DC area to be close to my sister and the little ones.
