Thorn Insects

Today I finished the last of the collage animals. There’s a thorn insect. There’s a new Clownfish. This morning I had about 30 minutes. I listened to a James Victore speech, Your work is a gift and began cutting and gluing. In 15 minutes I had some cool animals. I wasn’t thinking of perfection. I had a little time. I wanted to create. I did.

I’ll finish editing Different Is Beautiful. Working on this book has brought up so many wonderful thoughts. Today the best one of all happened. No matter where you come from, or how different we may seem, we can always use our gifts to encourage others. Art teaches me patience, to work through mistakes, and most importantly self love.
