This Horse Isn't Dead Yet


I've always liked this quote that I pasted into a collaborative journal I worked on long, long ago. I think it's a good reminder that when things are no longer serving their purpose it's time to just let them go. This little blog has been sorely neglected for the last few years and I've spent a lot of time wondering if it's time to "dismount." It's not that I lost my art-making mojo. I'm still creating. Possibly more now than ever before. But I've spent a lot of time wondering about the purpose for this blog and whether it serves a purpose at all. A lot of time. Heaps of time. So much time. 

Here is what this blog is not. It's not a marketing tool since I don't sell anything here. I don't have an Etsy site or online shop. It's not a promotional tool since I'm not trying to interest anyone in my latest book or online class or workshop. I don't have any of those things. I'm not even sure I want any of those things. At this point in my life, I'm not trying to turn my passion for making things into my livelihood. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just not my purpose. 

So why am I here? What's the point?  

To share. And hopefully, in some tiny way, to inspire. To spread the love. That's it. And it's enough for me. 

In light of that conclusion, I can now say this horse isn't dead yet!  

Hop on as I gallop off to search for love, truth, and beauty in the world and to share it here with anyone who cares to travel along. 

Peace and love to you my friends.
