I live in modest house. And I do thank God for the house I have. But I do share it with two teens, a preschooler, a big, hairy dog, and of course my hubby. And I have to say that
sometimes things can get a little hairy. (Beyond the dog that is! lol) And at those times
I yearn for more space. A small room to call a studio. A playroom for the little guy.
I long for peace and solitude and space. And so I dream of houses.
The perfect house. The perfect life. Little strife and little worries.
Of course, this is a tall order and no matter what the size of your house, it is not a cure all for all the other things you wish for your life. But it's nice to dream.
I have almost completed my current journal and though I will continue to do another, I feel that I want to go somewhere else with my mixed media paintings. Though not quite sure where.
My head is filled with ideas, yet executing them is another story.
And it unnerves me that I've yet to settle down with just one style and keep going with it
till I have a zillion pieces out the kazoo! I'm still in exploratory mode. Still trying to find myself, as an artist and sometimes as a person. This unsettles me. I am feeling frustrated and unsettled today. I feel short of time and balance. I feel selfish for wanting to be able to create all day long and not have to worry about real life things. And this is how I feel today.
And so I dream of houses, and finding my space, my niche. I dream of being a better mom, (ya know the TV kind), a better wife and a better artist. A successful artist.
I dream...knowing that this too shall pass and some of those dreams will come true.
And I think of the quote..."This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it."
And so I will try and rejoice for all I have here and now.
What do you dream of?
