from moss cottage to wherever in this big wide world you happen to be, happy wondrous new year!
now for the random thoughts you’ve come to expect…
i just finished deleting all 7 of the blogs over at typepad. 6 class blogs including my very first class offering way back in april of 2009 – stencilry. wow. that was the class that started me down this road of taking my teaching life in a classroom with little kids, onto the vast interwebz where i host classes for grownups. also deleted was the old DFLA which i began in february of 2007. almost 9 years ago. of course you probably know, everything that was over there now lives here. all the same, it was nostalgic to press the delete buttons.
it felt BIG and final. like cutting something loose. so good, at long last, to have everything under 1 roof over here at wordpress. by the way, there’s no deadline for former students who aren’t quite ready to let go of their classes. i wrote about that HERE. i’ve been v. busy adding people to the new sites. if you emailed and didn’t hear from me, email again. i’ll get everyone sorted out soon enough.
at this moment i have no clue where i’ll be traveling this year, but i know i’ll go somewhere. i am ready to be summoned to my next adventure in a new place.
i’m ready for more reading, more daily writing, more trips up the coast to santa barbara & carpinteria, more desert sojourns, more walking adventures. more watercolor, more gouache. more more more.
i’m letting the wind fill my sails, gliding out of the 2015 harbor and heading out into the open sea of 2016. it feels vast. uncharted. sort of wild. i love that about a new year, that delicious sense of freedom & possibility.
see you out there.
