Questions and Answers

Day 323…

Yesterday’s daily enlightenment from http://yourdailyenlightenment.wordpress.com :

Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.    Earl Gray Stevens

These words find me in the middle (?) of creating my own “art” and convincing myself I really didn’t need to finish this project.  It was enough to just experience the process.  Old self-reasoning when I’m getting too close to the jugular.  Gulp.

Then Lynn calls from New Mexico, a gentle, creative friend I haven’t seen for at least ten years.  We immediately launch into an intimate connection of shared concerns and how we work through them.

Next I attend the opening of the Art Educators Show, hoping to get ideas and inspiration and to meet up with Nadine, a playfully creative friend.  Well, she was there and patiently listened to my hesitations, offered ideas, and then suggested we walk through the Red River District…a block of empty, neglected buildings amid colorful, mosaic murals nestled under the bridge and across the street from the casinos.

I’m ready to begin again.
