No, I don't have a big head, or ego. To be quite honest, if anything- quite the opposite. But I have discovered over this past year, that I have a gathered much more support and encouragement from family and friends, than I ever expected, and have even collected my own little personal fan club.
I have been told by more than one person, that I have inspired them to follow their dreams, to do something they have always wanted to do- but hadn't yet...Everyone has dreams, and so many of those dreams are tied down with way too may shouldas
, and some days....There comes a point in time where you just have to stand up and take that first step, and DO IT.
I never thought I would get this far- to do something I have always wanted to do. Something that I really have a passion for. Something that evidently- I have gotten fairly good at doing. Something I can be proud of( ...mmm
most of the time :) and best of all something that I can share with others. Something beautiful I can create, and something special I can record...
So many of you have been here from the beginning- encouraging me, listening to me, humoring me- "wait,I have just a few more I want to show you"...I would like to take this moment to thank you- you are what keeps me going much of the time.
Yes, the economy sucks at the moment- and will more than likely get worse before it gets better... and artwork is a luxury...but here is to an even better 2009!
So... I'm going to "ride this little pony as long as I can", and we will just see where I end up... that's part of the fun- I never know where, and what I will be doing next.
See you there! Ann
