balance

The further away I get from the day I graduated college, the more that I ask myself what do I want to be when I grow up? Funny that it has taken me two years to relize that I am a "grown up" and that I can start doing the things I have always dreamed of now. Working in retail is something I enjoy, and it provides me with time to make, but I need to start showing, an artist can not live solely in their studio for eternity. I want to morph the job and the making together and hopefully I am working towards that. Most retail enviorments have visual coordinators, people that make the flow of the store make sense, the elfs that put christmas together and make spring look soft. I have been thinking about this for a while now, since last summer. Currently I am in a class at work that could be a stepping stone into that kind of work. I guess that what I am rambling is that I am a grown up and need to start taking steps to the life that I dream of and have since I was a little girl with my first paper mache ballon sculpture. I want making to be my world. In my studio and in the outside of it.

now you have me thinking about this idea of the "gown up" and how it is that we transition into becoming what we think we are suppose to be verse being who we are. I have to say that I think that the steps we are taking and the person that you are becoming seem like a great grown up to me.
