I attended the opening for the Spring Show at the Orchard Gallery. Ran into so many people that I knew that were not from the Orchard. It was nice. But people keep talking about how they didn’t have time to create art until their kids were teenagers. Please tell me it isn’t so. That is so discouraging. Plus, I just really don’t believe it. My plan is that as they get older they will become more independent, if only for short periods of time everyday. I hope to be the voice of encouragement to other moms some day.
