|AEDM2015 Day 24: Reading Clouds|
I'm 62 years old and I still see fanciful creatures in the clouds. It's one of my "skills" that I don't every want to give up, along with what the hummingbird is saying to me, or the conversations the stuffed animals have on my bedroom lounge. It's something that I believe my mother and my grandmother encouraged -- along with Southern storytelling tradition as well as a life of never ending emotional drama. This has its good side -- I am lucky to be alive, I believe, because I've spent a lot of my life making up things. It's a good thing too because those aforementioned traits lend themselves to my being the artist I am!
