On a positive note the big gray cloud is lifting, we are getting a handle on our budget, and I am looking forward to take some sort of class this fall. I struggle with focusing on a practical education or feeding my creative root that has almost withered beyond repair. What kind of example am I to Emma and Jared...don't I preach to them to work and hard and do what you love, and while it my be a hard and rugged path the happiness and self growth will make it so worth it? I tend to think of all the work that it will take to rediscover a passion and it almost seems easier to ride the excuse train.
Enough of that. I don't know what the rest of the year will bring my way, but it's time to live each moment with passion and stoke the fire of creativity...one day at a time, for better or worse.
