In three and a half very short days I will be headed to Palm Springs for The Second Annual Art Retreat. I have my hat and striped poolside cover up ready to put in the suitcase and the toenails have been polished with a lovely shade called pink flamenco.
Last year this was a great opportunity to rejuvanate my inner artist. We all have one. Some of us don't let them out in public much; worried that our masterpieces aren't that good. I have enjoyed reading what Loretta has to say on this topic lately.
Here is what I do know. I have a day job already. I like it pretty well. I don't ever intend for my artistic explorations to take me anywhere other than where I am right now. But I do believe that being able to hang out with creative types and have the chance to dabble alongside them makes me better at my real job. Don't ask me to explain the science behind this, I just know it's true.
