New Years Eve

Today is New Years Eve! I am tired today, didn't sleep well last night, but am looking forward to seeing our friends tonight. Its funny, I have been running into all of these old friends and aquaintences, which is interesting. Its nice to see faces from what seems like a distant life of years ago... Its funny how we all seem to travel in circles. Friends, spirits - souls, we come together in this life, finding each other in passing, in times of need, through other people and friends. Sometimes we have people that come into our lives suddenly, unexpectedly and then disapear just as quickly. Other times, we meet people that we bond with and cultivate long relationships with, friendship or otherwise. I am always fascinated with how people come to be who they are and who they surround themselves with.
I don't know if I have any New Years resolutions (actually, I never really do, and if I do, I don't really take them seriously, they are more like passing thoughts). There are many ongoing dreams that I continually work at achieving, however. They sometimes rotate which order they are present in my mind, but my energy is always spent trying to move my self towards those dreams... I always love hearing about other resolutions and dreams. What is the driving force in your life?

So here I am, starting a blog... On my new computer (that I am still learning to use, but LOVE, thus far)! I think that my main goal with starting this blog, it to share the art that I create as well as my emotions, thoughts, inspirations, and sometimes random nonsensicalness. At this time, I am trying to find where I fit in in this madhouse of an economy. I feel lucky that I am able to do what I love, even if I feel like I can never catch up with myself.
I am excited to see where this blog leads me... I am constantly journaling, scribbling and sketching, painting, felting, spinning wool, helping my boyfriend with his puppet making (he has a business as an entertainer at festivals), there are just so many things that I do and love learning about and hope to share here. Maybe I will even find some new friends, thoughts and inspirations through blogging!
