In My Past Life
Before I had kids, I used to be able to draw.... and I took classes right up until a few months before delivering my daughter who is now 17. It's funny how you can devote so much time to something and then suddenly you realize 17 years have gone by and you may no longer posses this ability. I think the drawing talent cells got pushed out with the baby those many years ago. I still have my box of 130 pastels safely tucked away for "some day when I get back to it" but I don't know if that day will ever come. I haven't so much as even opened the box to check to see if the pastels are whole or if they've turned to dust.
Honestly, I don't know where I'd fit it in between quilting, knitting, photography, and "Photoshopping". I can tell you one thing, I am never bored. However, if there should come a lull down the road, I will be picking those pastels back up and trying my hand to see if I can still do it.
The fruits of my labor hang in my home.
