We have a lot of creatives in my family.
My mom wanted to be an actress and took acting classes.
*i can hear my baby brother laughing because she did a good job acting all her life*
My baby brother was a frustrated songwriter and piano-man.
My grandmother did every type of needlework, as did her mom,
and they went beyond the craft into the expressive forms.
But nobody “made” it….
Hence we’ve always thought there was a family curse.
But then yesterday Mitchell pointed out that my art is going to hang on the wall
of the grand Reception Room of the Washington State Legislative Building.
I am doing the replacement flag of the historic first flag!
Maybe the family curse is broken!

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
