Time to draw for yourself? LOL. This is one thing most pros I know dream of and rarely get. It's a problem since they tend only do the things they already know how to do (people don't pay to have one experiment). So, yes; scheduling time to do it is a good idea, if you can stick to the schedule . . . well, before one can stick to it, she has to actually start.
I am happy to hear that Kayuh continues to enjoy and active life with both of you and her new friend.
Me? Riding the rollercoaster of life. It's full of ups and downs that sometimes, somehow, come both at the same time. Haha.
Monday I was first on scene at a terrible accident in which a motorcycle and a car met in an offset head-on collision. We stabilized the victim and secured the scene until State Police and medical professionals arrived. It is a rural location so we waited a long time. Everyone worked together without any arguments or leadership squabbles. Each took charge to the limit of his/her competence, then deferred to another when the issue went beyond that. I felt like a bee in a hive, experiencing how a group comes together as a unit. We were like jazz musicians meeting for the first time, taking out our instruments and starting to play. No confusion, no anxiety, no conflict, no egos - just a sensitive give and take resulting in a seamless and ultimately successful performance. I've never experienced that before.
