55 AND NOT TO OLD

Lately I have waking up around three am, with a slight bit of anxiety. I decided to start this blog as a way to explore my journey in the world of art but slowly I am realizing that in order to do that I have to take the plunge and do it full time. You see, my dream is to create wonderful works of art that can be worn. Not a new concept I know, but it is my dream non-the less. What stops me? Money. Isn't that what usually stops us from following our dreams?

My partner and I are buying a new house that we both love. It is in the Catskill Mountains and the possibilities are endless. I will have a real studio....space to set up all of my sewing machines (I have five) and I will have a design wall. The land that the house sits on is quite beautiful and is surrounded by a stream. There is an art gallery in the town where I will volunteer my time and get to talk to other artists. Even though I am fifty five years old I am not to old to follow my dream and start a new career. I just need to be courageous. Is anyone out there reading this?
