When I grow up ...


I'm going to be .... at 51 I still haven't figured that one out yet. Firstly, I'm still waiting for that "magic moment" when I'll know for sure that "I'm grown up" and secondly as I grow and change what I want to "be" also grows and changes. So it's hardly any wonder to me that time spent in January was thinking about career paths and what my next choice should be. My mother was always amazed by variety in my resume - it is a bit daunting - however, I've often thought I wanted to be a "renaissance" woman when I grow up so may that's still influencing my thought processes. Anyway, January is about "Opportunities" and trying to figure out which way to go. This time I'll keep my day job until I'm a little more solid about which way to go before deciding I want a change - new direction for me.

More importantly, I've figured out the design for February. I need to back the piece and do the edging. Should be able to post it in a few days and then start work on March. In the meantime, I'm gathering ideas for April.

Next is to get caught up on a piece for fSA which was due last month but should be completed before our next gathering ---- I hope!

Cheers,
feather

The interesting thing about this one is that the paths intersect... It's fascinating to play around with possible interpretations for this piece, especially adding the things you wrote about yourself and your career paths. I can relate to it and for a long time thought that the only common thread in my changing career paths was writing, that I always ended up doing a lot of writing. Actually, now at 66, looking back, an even more significant commonality is creativity... the opportunity to plan, develop and create. Thanks for this thought-provoking piece! Robin A.

Aw, you disappointed me, I thought the "aha" moment was coming any second now! I guess life is a constant learning and choosing of pathways... I like your page!

I've just had the pleasure of reading your blog and it's been a wonderful experience. I love your beaded pieces. You are really exploring different themes and asking questions. I especially like your piece on chaos and thoughts.

Don't know how I missed this piece, but I must echo everyone else's comments -- your pieces are quite interesting and provoke a lot of thought . . .

You are opening an interesting topic there - which of the possible paths in life to choose. Your pretty piece, with its criss-cross roads, illustrates this very well.
