I've been walking like an injured dog. Circling. Circling. Trying to get away from whatever it is that is hurting me. A dog will just keep circling. A human, such as I, will finally throw up her hands and scream at the sky.
That's when the hubby comes in and says: "Why don't you find one of those art retreats or courses and go somewhere to try something different?"
"Huh? I don't have any money, that's why."
And then he says, "We'll take some of the money from the last course I taught and send you somewhere."
I'm thinking he actually wants to help me and not just rid of me and my black clouds.
So, I do some searching . . .
Surface Design in Columbus, Ohio. Maybe. I could drive there. That would be the reasonable thing to do.
"Didn't you once mention something in Portland, Oregon?"
"Uh. Yeah," I stammered.
"So check into that."
And I did. And I whined that it was too far from downtown Portland. And I said it would be too expensive. And then hubby got on the computer and looked up flights and costs. And then I got on the Art and Soul Portland website and then I found it . . .
. . . a class with Jessie Reno! This is something I have DREAMED about, but never had the guts to do. So now, I'm registered for the class. Now I need to figure out the logistics of travel, child care, moving money and what not. I also need to figure out how to extend the trip to take Donna Watson's course also.
I'M SO EXCITED!!!
