You may notice a new publication under "published in." This is the latest issue of the magazine out of my home town's newspaper. I believe my editor called it "the chocolate issue." I call it "the love issue." That makes it sound racy but it is anything but racy. Perhaps this will intrigue you. A few of you have asked me how to get an issue to read - until recently, it was a subscriber bonus. But I believe you can get this issue or back issues if they have them in stock. From my editor: Anyone interested in purchasing a copy of her should call The Courier-Times: 765-529-1111 or 1-800-489-2472. The receptionist answering can help.
In this latest issue I wrote about my art journey. For most of my life I had no idea that I was artistic. Oh, I could draw well enough to keep my children quiet in a church service. And my earliest memory of writing anything was a play that I wrote one summer with a friend when we were around ten years old. But if anyone had told me I was artistic I would have laughed.
Although I came late to the world of art, I'm thankful I learned it was there - within.
Art calms me.
Art distracts me.
Art allows me to focus on what I'm doing and not any issue or problem(s) at hand.
For me, art is a little like writing because often times, it takes me where it wants to go.
If you haven't dabbled in art, I encourage you to do so.
You will be glad you did.
