Some people say I'm a dreamer...

Just wanted to say THANKS to my friend Sue Simpson at earhtonestudios who mentioned me in an article on her blog...and asked me to do a little feature post   www.earhtonestudios.blogspot.com ...


Don't forget to come back here when you are done reading Sue's blog!...

"I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because i couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs i would choose. i wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and as i sat there, unable to decide, the figs…began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet."-s.plath


This poem kind of haunt and taunts me...I guess because it reminds me that good things left unused will rot or at best be unusable...and that is sort of how I have been leaving my art these last many months...

 ...a little like little miss Muffet I suppose...sitting on my art so to speak, like a tuffet...not listing it for sale or pursuing getting it published, etc...

What I feel like I need to do is share what I have, then create some more...
because like the poem, I feel that I don't want to let my art wither and fall unused to the ground... 8)
