2014 has been an interesting year. It wasn't an easy year emotionally. I had to adjust to big changes in my life and in myself. I lost my belief in God. I mourned my aging parents. I separated from my live community of artist friends. I spent a lot of time alone. I spent a LOT of time alone. I also became more engaged in national politics, was infuriated and then saddened with social injustice and government corruption, and nearly migrated to another country because of it.
There was also a lot of light this year. Abhaya (my life partner) and I celebrated seven years together. It has been a beautiful union, and I am blessed to have him in my life. I also spent many special, memorable moments with my mom, my dad and my sister. I launched this blog, and realized my dream of making one-of-a-kind pieces only. I recovered my love of drawing. Improved my photography and writing skills, and listened to many great stories while I worked in my studio.
I am calmer, stronger and grateful to be on my path. I look forward to a new year with regained confidence, clarity, and many new ideas I want to explore.
Thank you for coming with me on this creative journey. Your encouragement and support has fed my soul. May you also find meaning in your path, and take each step with courage, wisdom, and trust in your self.
