I am SO EXCITED. Today is my LAST DAY of working. Besides my painting, I have a "real job" working as a medical technologist for Kaiser Permanente. Tomorrow will be my FIRST DAY of being what I love: a FULL TIME ARTIST.
It's kind of like the life-altering feeling I had on the way to the hospital before the birth of my first child many years ago. It was a foggy 3am ride and I wanted to gleefully shout into the night "I'm going to have a baby!" That exuberance is what I feel now.
We don't get many days in our lives when our path makes an abrupt turn. Sometimes we don't even see the turns coming. I've seen this turn coming for a long time and now it's here.
I cannot wipe the smile from my face. :-)
