I do art everyday – either by actually creating something or by mentally envisioning, thinking about and planning the next possible project. I wonder if degrees of passion are what separate dabblers/hobbyists from – well…..others like me. I can’t imagine ignoring my passion. It is all consuming and requires constant attention (and not always my best friend – is a great friend so demanding?). I recently had a few opportunities to be among people interested in art quilting but realized, very quickly, that the dedication I bring to my craft is way out of proportion to theirs. It was quite the eye opener! Yes, Denise….yet another personal trait (quirk) that is important for you to be aware of and monitor appropriately when in the company of others….sigh….sometimes I just feel weird (but wouldn’t change it for the world)…..
