My sister's son is home with his family and continuing to recuperate and improve and so are his parents! I am so grateful.
My daughters are in the home stretch of their spring semester with only 3 weeks remaining. Of course, these final weeks are the toughest, but they are completing their year at Boston University. They have grown, matured and changed. What a year it has been.
I have been busy writing and working on my next novel. I am over 30,000 words into this story and find it just as exciting as writing the first one! I am grateful for finding something I love to do, something that challenges me and motivates me to learn more!
My 12 week long art class finally finished this week. I am glad that it is over. It was a long class that seemed to aggravate me more than instruct. I learned that to really learn things I have to pursue techniques, history and knowledge and not depend on others to be informative. There are occasions where teachers are knowledgeable and well versed. When I come across them, I will appreciate them, their efforts and ability to share knowledge. I learned to not "expect" a good teacher, but to realize and appreciate the few that are out there.
