Five years ago when I started this blog, it was the perfect vehicle for the outward expression of what was developing in my inner life. My passionate belief that it is essential for us, as humans, to truly experience our world and what it communicates to us underlies my writing and art. Having just gone through a move to a new city and deep in the work of homeschooling I found my creative outlet here and through my articles for Newnan Coweta Magazine.
Life moves on. Once again, we are in a new place...physically and emotionally. We have completed our homeschooling years and are the stewards of a new home. I am ready to explore my art as a deeper expression of who I am. I have taken these words to heart: "My life and my art are going to tell a story whether I try to or not...a Christian is a living explanation. Be who and what you are." (It Was Good: Making Art to the Glory of God, Charlie Peacock)
So...for the time being I am leaving The Thoughtful Gardener but will continue writing, taking photos, painting and other good things at http://mydrawl.blogspot.com/ Please join me there.
