Let's see if I remember how to do this......

I'm back.

I think.

I"ll try.

Let's see....

It has been seven years since I was last here. 

Thirteen years since my first post.

My kids are seventeen now and thinking about college,  

I'm overwhelmed at it all and at starting this again, but I loved it here, 

I met so many great people and wonderful artists and love that I can look back through my journey as a 

mother, an artist and a teacher.  

I love how much I am the same and how much I have changed. 

 I appreciate that this blog was the beginning of me taking myself seriously as an artist after graduating, 

becoming a teacher and a mother.  

And if you are here reading this, I so appreciate you taking the time.

I started this blog 6 or 7 years ago to get the courage to apply to graduate school. Now all these years later I am divorced, parent less and need courage sgain, but I am not sure what for. My life has been a surprise. Much different than I might have thought when I was staring into the eyes of frogs and searching for cicadas. I thought being an adult would be less lonely than being a child.  But it is a lonely venture albeit a wonderful one that is filled with beautiful skies, a bright moon, and wonderous creatures.

It has been so long. I am on Instagram now and it is too easy, but I miss this.

An exceptionally talented friend of mine wrote a beautiful post about identity.  
She is a writer, an artist, an exceptional mother, and one of those friends that you can count on more than family, one that you are certain you were meant to know.
