staring at the blank page before you

oh my. this summer is flying by.

for the record, i didn't mean to rhyme. my apolgies for being so away. i thought i was going to have a more relaxed summer, but it's been a tad busy. this past week i finished my ceramics class and i'm starting beginning drawing and an accounting course. this week i'm going to pick up the last of my ceramics pieces. i shall take some pictures and post them. i'm going to miss the studio, but i'm so excited to start drawing again.

the more i immerse myself in artwork, the more i feel dazed by the possibility of doing it for the rest of my life. it's strange how in the end, you really have the choice of what you do each day. people make excuses that they need to work to pay the bills, that they have obligations. but it doesn't mean that you can't incorporate your passion within that. others say, most hobbies aren't necessities and that they are expensive at times. i think it's a matter of being resourceful. i've also had a big realization that i tend to save things for special occasions. like i won't wear that because it's only for special occasions or i'm not going to eat/drink that because i'm saving it for a special day. my biggest thing is that i save art supplies as if they are my treasures and i don't want them to disappear, so i save them. today is a special occasion. today is what we have. you don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. celebrate the now and don't put off living. you have the choice to live and you have the choice of happiness. go out and grab it. no one can do it for you.

live you life with arms wide open,
today is where your book begins,
the rest is still unwritten.

i've been driving a lot this summer and one day deep in thought about life, this song came on. and everything sort of hit me. i'm trying to live each day inspired by this song.

release you inhibitions,
