Such a sense of relief when the taxes are done. Like the carefree days of summer can finally begin now that the government isn't floating above my head at night any more, pointing their fingers at me, disapproving of my procrastination. I actually did my federal taxes long ago, but felt so good about that accomplishment that I didn't feel the need to do the state and city taxes until midnight on the 14th. But it is all clear skies from here...............until I look around at the mountains of projects I have to complete. @#%&*

On the road to find out

Okay, time to bite the bullet and start the blog. I keep feeling like I need the perfect start and if I wait for that it will never happen. So anyway.... As of late I have been learning a lot about art from my four year old daughter. I have studied art off and on for almost twenty years (longer if you count elementary art classes), and Willow can still make things new for me. What a wonderful gift. I just need to keep reminding myself to stop assuming and listen to her perspective. After all, she is privy to that magical time when everything is new and possible. Constantly asking, "Is it real?". I have trained myself to answer,"What do you think? Why?" And the answers are wise and magical.

*sorry, amy, for stealing lyrical titles, but that is what you get for having such a readable blog.
