I have had a crap couple of weeks which have actually turned into great weeks because they have taught me to look at my life differently ...
I try to see life lessons in everything. Without going into details, something happened at work (not huge, just enough for me to think about things differently) which has made me redirect my way of thinking. I truly believe that sometimes if life is just going along swimmingly, then you become complacent and nothing really happens! As annoying as 'contrast' in life is (in Abraham-Hicks language, 'contrast' is being faced with what you don't want which gives you focus for what you do want!), it really does highlight what is important in life. I need to take my artwork more seriously, I need to take my future supplementary career more seriously (and get some bloody direction!).
So this is what is important ... my tapestry 'Goth Deathrock No, 4 - Anita' will be part of the City Of Marion's end of year exhibition at Gallery M - please have a peek if you are in Adelaide, it's on from November 30 - January 9. The framer did a great job!
And now I have finished my studies, I have more time for this:
Gotta get those cotton scarf prototypes finished!!
I was greatly inspired by Grayson Perry's 'Who Are You?' documentary, which analyses the concept of 'identity' - highly recommended!
I am still toying with the idea of studying again next year (funds permitting!), probably either a small business course, or something closely related.
Nothing like a shake up! And blogs are great for putting thoughts down, aren't they? (regardless of who is reading) ;)
