The Power of 50

Ok, today is my 50th birthday! I'm so happy to say that I've never felt more powerful, happy, beautiful, capable, fearless than I do today. I'm exploring new pathways and embracing "finding something before you know what you're looking for" as Jesse Reno as aptly puts it in his book. I'm honoring my intuition and manifesting my most heartfelt desires.

Thank you so much to all my friends, family, followers and acquaintances that have taught me all the lessons that have brought me here today. Most of what I am feeling today is a warm, loving hug from the world and I am most grateful!!

Life has never been better!! My art is changing and I am changing, not growing older, but newer, different. I'm finding deeper purpose and a great, powerful love of the process of making art. As I find myself going deeper, I'm also finding a greater desire to connect with other artists and a greater community of creative/ like minded folks. Finding new avenues for this is ahead of me. Also ahead will be new workshop offerings, some with a focus on creativity, some focusing on some of the mixed media techniques I'm using as well as some of my usual offerings.

Food groups are also on my table this morning; the coffee group, the chocolate group and the wine group!! I have a feeling all these are on the menu tonight!

So, thanks for being part of my celebration today, which honestly is one we should have for ourselves and with those around us that we cherish, every single day.... The dance is forever and YOU are the dance!!

Fifty is fabulous and feeling that way about it is half the fun! Wear those stilettos every day that you want to with anything you want to cause you will retire them, when and only when, you want to! Congratulations....

Happy Birthday , Marla! Does the love of art and creativity make us feel younger? Your videos and description of your workshop were so inspiring that I'll be watching for another one close to Portland.
It's your day to celebrate!
