I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.

I loved that song when I was a teenager.
It was sung by Johnny Nash.
I played it on my record player endlessly.

About a week ago, I wrote the heading for this entry.
No, it wasn’t because it is officially spring.
I was being challenged on the life front – by myself. And Hallelujah…. I worked through it!

I realized that this road block…was not caused by someone else. It was something that I had created. Me.
And here I am. Human and celebrating another hurdle crossed.
Thankful for the opportunity to struggle, and find the way to where I am heading. Where ever that may be.

I must say I feel pretty darn good. I just wish I would have ‘seen the light’ a looooong time ago.
As the saying goes “better late than never”!!! Right?
Or I should say something more like: as the song says….’it’s going to be a bright, bright, sunshiny day’!

Creatively, my door has been opened because of breaking through that barrier.
I have been carving to no end. Until my hands say – “Ok….enough for today.”

I am going to share a number of snap shots as I created this piece. Magnolia.
You saw the almost finished base in last weeks entry.
I always find it fascinating to see something evolve, so I decided to share it here as well.
This is just the first batch. More to come soon.

For those who want to learn how to carve in clay, stick around. You will see many more photos of pieces as they evolve! 😀

Living fully – carving a life,
