It’s Done!


Yup! It’s over. Kaput. It’s gone, finished. And what the hell do we do next!

The year 2017 was a good year. It was also a bloody awful year. As I look back over the previous 12 months I’m pleased that I survived it and that those I love, are happy and healthy. We have made great strides as a species but there have also been atrocities that we have to take responsibility for. But not today.

Today I want to remember fondly the things I’ve done, the people I have connected with and the dreams I still hold dear. December 31 is a day of reflection and of anticipation. Where are we going next? What are our goals? I can only speak for myself and I can only postulate that the good times I am expecting will only manifest themselves if I’m in the right attitude. It’s all about the attitude.

Have I grown as an individual? Have I been a positive influence to those I have connected with? I think so. I hope so.

Anticipation is a wonderful way to greet the New Year. And I am anticipating a year full of laughter and positive experiences. I’m going to publish at least one book this year, possibly two. I’m going to have another art show that I am excited about. I’m painting underseascapes that I have never done before. And I’ve already sold one painting!

Will there be tears in my future? Probably. I’m sure there will be disappointments and anger and sadness and . . . but that’s okay. It’s all part of the journey and I’m looking forward to the next step. Would you like to share a little of my journey? It’s going to be a ride!

    I will be happy to tag along on your journey, Pam. For underseascapes (I never thought of that as a word. Maybe the last thing I learned in 2017) to Shady Quips. I’ll be there. One of the best things in 2017 was starting my days checking in on your journey. Happy New Year!!!

    I’m looking forward to at least a finished and successfully pitched book, if not a full-out published one yet — still lots of work to do this winter — but I’m excited to think of yours coming out! Looking forward to seeing more of your art too; undersea landscapes are wonderful, so much opportunity for unique plays of light. All the best in 2018!!
