thoughts are things


We each have a path in life. This BIG idea that makes us giggle smile. I know it and everyone knows it. We begin this path and then doubt, fear and negative outside forces and people  influence us in the worst way. These are the curves, zigzags, twists and turns in our simple path. This weekend I have been literally contemplating my purpose–well not really because deep down I know what it is. I love working with kids but art and writing is also a LOVE that has become an obsession. I spend most of my free time drawing and painting. But then there’s these meanders. These bumps in the road. I’ll be painting and for some reason the painting doesn’t feel right even after I have painted the same poem for like EVER it seems. Then I hear the same words,”Grow up and how can you draw all day?”  It’s not that they want to hurt me but come on isn’t every idea or dream a silly dream until OH it came true That’s just it I simply want to paint.  The point is this is a meander. Do I let these thoughts bring me to a stop? No absolutely not! 

Here’s a poem  that sums up how I feel and great timing that I finished it.


Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
