you know how when you are learning to do something (a new balance pose in yoga, knitting, a new recipe, well, whatever…) you go through a period of dorkiness. By dorkiness I mean, you’re not having the fun of thing or getting the reward of doing the thing, because you are learning how to, the mechanics and technique. If you give up now, you get nothing, if you stick with it, you just might get the reward. Well, I kind of feel that way with life now. I’m trying to get a handle on the stress thing and figure out how to re-center my life. to keep art from being pushed off to the side. to ensure that all of my multiple identities work together vs. against each other. before I have another health crisis. I mean, I would actually like to live to BE a little old lady, rather than just sounding like one.
