Where does the time go? And why do I so rarely get anything I want to get done, done?
My baby is already almost 17 months old! My boy is already in Pre-school, and I remember Grad as if it were last week! All of my goals still seem so far away, though. It’s like chasing a rainbow. It is so visible, but when you think you’ve almost got to it, it’s another mile off. Hmmm…It’s not that I’m discouraged. It’s just that time, time, it’s just not tangible anymore. It races and the day is finished before I can even get caught up to it. Is this what aging is like? You still think you’re twenty, but time has gotten so far ahead of your mind that you’re actually forty? Well, questioning, and computering, aren’t getting me anywhere tonight, so I’ll leave you with an older painting, just to show something. This one’s called “Waiting.” If she only knew, not to be impatient.
I really am going to paint tomorrow.
Goodnight.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
