"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream"
- C.S. Lewis
Through an unexpected chain of events I found myself headed for graduate school in London -- across the world and seemingly the polar opposite of where I'd made my home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Don't get me wrong, there was a whole lot of thinking behind my decision to commit to grad school. It absolutely did not happen by accident... talk about dozens of pro/con lists and full on analysis mode; I even started learning Dutch at one point. Actually, I was initially extremely resistant to the idea, batting it away over the course of many months until I realized that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. Yes, I'm well into my 40's! Yes, I will have to completely reorganize my life and business to pursue this goal of developing my artwork in an intensive environment! Yes, it will be inconvenient, and messy, and who knows how I will manage all that? BUT, it will be an amazing opportunity and experience. If I've learned anything it's that life is short -- and unpredictable. I'm proud that I've become a woman who cares less what people might think and more about seizing the day (thank you to my dear Chip for teaching me by example). Yes indeed, Carpe diem!
