Taking Shape

So in my last post I made a reference to clay...I think it's a great metaphor for life in general. You shape your life like you might shape clay. You see a vision and you try to create it with the clay...sometimes you get it just right, sometimes you fail...and sometimes it turns out nothing like you envisioned and unexpectedly create something amazing and beautiful that you never intended to...a mistake becomes a beautiful and interesting work of art. I bet museums are full of wondrous mistakes!

I'm back....

So...I took quite a long hiatus from writing...and so soon after I started! Not that anyone reads this. I started this for me and, especially at this point, I'm the only one who reads it. I haven't gotten up the courage to share this with anyone. I mentioned that I was starting this to a couple of people, but never actually told them where to find my blog :-)
