Being Who I Am Created to Be

Over a decade ago, during the 18th year of my public services career, I hosted an Artist’s Way book gathering in the local community center. (The Artist’s Way, by Julie Cameron, is a twelve chapter course on discovering who you are and taking steps to live up to your dreams. A dangerous book!)

WHAM! The Secret Artist within… the one who had sneaked in the back door of every one of my jobs offering to create newsletters, fliers, posters, therapeutic art…the one that came out at holidays to make gifts for people… the one who held various gatherings in the community as a way to connect creatively with others… she came DANCING on out singing, “Hey! I want to be out front and do my thing! I’m not hiding anymore! Get busy and get me some work!”
