I thought this blog was dead. I haven't posted in over two years. I closed it to uninvited readers and didn't invite anyone.
After a couple of failed relationships, it felt a bit humiliating having my life exposed through the blog. So much of my life has been documented here.
I'd been thinking recently about coming back to the blog and figured this is my life. Yes, it's humiliating in a way, but it's mine. It's who I am, where I've been, what I've done and I really shouldn't hide it. So, I've reopened my blog and hopefully will be sharing art and my heart with you again.
I am still teaching in the Montessori school, though I never did go get the official training. It's so expensive, even with the school paying half. I'd have to take 5 weeks unpaid from work, plus pay for a hotel and food while at training and there's really no compensation for it. I won't make more money at my school. The only compensation would be my own learning and, frankly, I read Montessori stuff constantly and there is so much available online that I feel I have a pretty good handle on it at this point. So....
Also, my sweetheart and I are starting a business. He can make awesome things with wood, including furniture and I, if you remember after so long, am an artist. We plan to combine our skills. I'm not quitting my day job any time soon but I hope in the long run that our business will sustain us.
And about my sweetheart. His name is Dan and he's awesome.
I have moved from my beloved apartment from the last post to a house in a rural setting surrounded by creeks and beautiful weeds and mountains. It's bliss, really. It took a while to adjust. I did love that apartment and its location but this place suits me to a T and I am very happy.
I hope I have art to share with you soon! Thank you for coming back to read this!
