I was able to spent time at the lake with three ladies I started teaching with 4 decades ago ... we are still friends, even though life has taken us in different directions. We raised our children "together" and now attend graduations from college and retirement parties.
We laughed and talked about memories that we all share... and made plans for the future. The dream of traveling together to a tropical island came up .... where and when? Who knows.
Being back in the studio is where I find myself today with 5 students and little time to paint on my own work. That is the frustration that I am dealing with lately. Not enough time in the day for ME and my own work ... I think it will slow after the school begins and I can hang in there until then.
I often think about scheduling one day a week with NO LESSONS ... just my own studio time ... but that doesn't pay the rent.
Squeeze in a little time for yourself ....
