"Practice is the mother of skill."
Someone once commented that I have done many things in my life. I joked with them, saying it's due to not sticking with anything. But, actually, it's due to curiosity and practice.
As a child, I was fascinated by everything artful but found I had absolutely no natural talent for anything. I took piano lessons (thanks, Mom, for enduring that); I liked English class for writing, art class to break up the day, and sang over average enough to get into the choir.
Twenty years past marriage and son, Josh, I found time and opportunity to paint with oils, acrylics, and watercolor. I also facilitated a writers' group at Barnes & Noble and taught classes called "Write and Self-Publish" (six books published to date).
While working in an office, I gained computer skills which I now teach individually by the hour and use these skills for my own enjoyment to further my art and writing education.
It's my hope that you anticipate getting of bed each day to do a new "thing."
