The last night of December 2010!!!
This has been a year full of challenges for me and my family. We have struggled with the deteriorating health of my hubby. Since Oct he has struggled with open heart surgery, a mini stroke, gradual loss of the use of his hands and feet/legs due to neuropathy caused by his diabetes, increased loss of his vision and his loss of his ability to care for himself or ambulate well. I have packed us up and moved us once again back to our origins in OH, near family and old friends.
Artistically it has not been a very productive year so for 2011 I have chosen the words: Letting Go!! as words to live by.
Letting Go: of UFOs that I don't need to complete, trying to live up to other's expectations (this will be a tough one!) of the life I know, the people I love, some of the things I collect!! A year of change is what I expect!!
Best Wishes for a Healthy Happy and Creative New Year for each of you!
