I have this plaque at my house with a saying by maya angelou on it. "Let us work toward a time where everything gives us joy." I love this saying because it is truly the description of how I live my life--and she said it all in only one sentence! I am far from perfect, and am not even trying to be--but to have an interesting life working with art, that brings me peace and joy would be my ultimate dream come true! I joined this community because I wanted to respond to a forum question; because it seems like it would be motivating; and because I don't really have too many upbeat people to talk to. I believe myself to be an artist--writing and designing are my specialty! I would like to meet people who are dreamers, open-minded, and who have goals that they actually work towards.
