265/365: This Above All

A carving on the sea cliffs in Ocean Beach brings a timely reminder.

Today I made
{it} to another milestone!

There are 100 days left until my 365 Days of Creative project comes full circle. 100 days left!!  My husband is tucked in for the night and I'm having a little wine and journal time to celebrate. It seems like so much less on this side of the number.

I'm trying to be patient and not let the passing of time rush my evolution as an artist, but I'm feeling the need to find my voice and my niche now, more than ever.
There are so many talented and creative people putting their gifts out into the world. How do I stay true to myself and make authentic, original art? How do I find exactly the work I am meant to be doing?

I'm happy to say I see my creative life stretching far past this special year, so I have more than 100 days left to answer these questions. (What a relief!) I know I need to continue to speak my truth and to express myself the best I can in whatever medium calls to me. The path to discovering your purpose is just the beginning of the beginning. And all along the path we must strive to make sense of the notion...

  2. I'm a little behind on the posts....not so much the reading I keep up with that but the actually leaving comments part. I'm so proud of you for making this're in the home stretch my friend! The fact that so much time has elapsed makes me sad too.....your posts are very often the creative kick in the butt I need after a long day in the real world.....It makes me sad that this era is coming to an end. All I can say is I hope you are able to stay much more up to date than I do with your blog
