Over the Moon

I’m getting lots of hugs at work this week.

I’ve been pretty emotional in my classes, because I know this is the last I’ll see of the wonderful little people who have filled my life with their smiles, energy, and open-ness for so long.

They sense that I am experiencing something that makes my presence feel different than usual. They may not be able to grasp the finality of my good-byes (they are only 4 and 5 years old, after all), but they are giving me extra hugs to show that they care back.

Caring works that way.

On the one hand, I feel the sadness of leaving a good career. On the other, I am over the moon to be embarking on a full time artist life, at last.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Being a full time Artist is wonderful! I miss my kids too- but there is a freedom this new life offers that is more wonderful than you can image at this moment!
    Keep Creating!

I LOVE hearing from you!
