I've neglected this blog for almost three months. Three months! That's like...three months!
I'm in the home stretch of my grad program. I shall soon have a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology. I will have probably two and a half to three years of internship after I graduate to accumulate the 3,000 hours required to sit for the licensing exam. It's going to be a while.
|I Can Dream, Original Finger Painting|
I used to think that "passion" was monomaniacal--that is, it was focused on the One True Thing and if you had more than one passion, you couldn't be as focused as you needed to be for a successful life.
Okay, we can stop laughing now.

I'm passionate about quite a few things, and I keep pursuing them in my own way (I love wisdom but I'm not going back to school for a degree in philosophy--or art, for that matter) and they make my life, and the lives of others, interesting.
I doubt I have Oprah's drive for stardom or Bill Gates's desire for control (alt and delete), but what I have at the end of the day is a pretty neat life. It's not perfect, and it gets me down at times, but overall, I enjoy being here.

I'm thrilled that my art--that something beautiful--can be used to create change and support others. If you'd like to see larger images of these Original Finger Paintings, please visit the Collected section of my gallery.
The fundraiser itself was a lot of fun and it was rewarding getting to talk to the people who won the Original Finger Paintings. I don't mind the gushing!
That's enough news for now. Sorry for the, you know, three months of silence. I'm not completely back, but you reader(s) are in my thoughts--which is in no way conflated with that under deck whimpering!
