First of all, Happy Memorial Day. Please take a minute to stop and remember all the men and women who serve your country who have fallen. Two weeks ago the current war became all to close to home when a friend I've known for years was shot in Afghanistan. The risks of the military have always been familiar since my dad died serving when I was two and my brother has been to numerous war zones multiple times. Whether or not we support the politics behind the reasons why our men and women are called to serve, we should all support the men and women. So take a moment away from the BBQ and remember why we mark this day... it is so much more than a long weekend!
Ok. Enough preaching.
My summer goals are to have some fun and relax. I want to explore on many levels: in my artwork; in preparation for my internship; how I will get teenage gang members interested in art therapy; my environment - local events, photo ops, long drives; new campsites; and of course the continued inner exploration of getting to know me better (Audrey Hepburn's singing just popped in my head... is that My Fair Lady?).
The other big goal is to prioritize all my projects. My house is constantly a wreck because I am always working on so many projects at the same time. It also means, some projects don't get done or they get postponed for very long lengths of time. So I am going to prioritize and try to work on maybe only 2 or so at a time... working on just one at a time will not work with my personality, trust me.
