The Creative Adventures of Mona Rita

Tuesday, August 28, 2007


It has occurred to me that I have allowed certain things in my life stifle my creativity. Without going into it, I will say that I believe realizing this is a step forward. I am certainly going to try to work on becoming what I envision for myself. Why not? It's not like someone else is going to come in and make decisions for me. I wouldn't want that anyway! :) This is an exciting journey, not just creatively, but in life. Someone in a movie once said, "don't dream it, be it." Of course I believe that dreams certainly have their place! Dreams help us dare what we envision if only for a moment. What happens next is up to us.

catching up

I think that I will finally be able to get back to work. At least sporadically. I have completed alot of the necessary work on the house. Of course owning a home is never ending activity it seems. But it is very nice to have such peace and quiet. Good for my creativity. I have yet to start the set up of my studio, but since the creative bug is biting I have to wait on that and just sit down and make some new pieces. Since all my supplies are in my workshop/studio I will have to fish them out of there and bring them back into the main house. I made some new friends on our recent trip to Philadelphia and I also sold some of my work. All in all it was loads of fun. Now back to work.
