New Neighborhoods

New Neighborhoods

After going to a 'holler' and back (if you're in the south, ya know what a holler is.....it's a huge area like a hole that's filled with these gorgeous weed like plants....basically good for nothing land).....don't you just LOVE how I act all southern now ;)....like I know the lingo?)....anyway, I digressed.......

I have had a HELL of a time getting on line and getting the computer to jive with Cable internet access....for all the hurdles, I have to say it is a lot faster....and hope it keeps up!

I'll start off this eve by just saying it is HEAVEN to be in Charlotte....it really is beautiful here....the hills, mountains, the PEOPLE, little towns are just so much better than what I was hoping for!

We ended up renting a townhouse in an area just north of downtown, and south of Lake Norman in Birkdale Village in Huntersville.....there are a ton of great cafes, restaurants, little shops all walking distance.....there's even this little pond near by where this lone blue heron resides with a gang of Geese.....

I have also decided to become a full time artist! A big risk but I have I hopes that I can "make it work" (thanks Tim Gunn!).....I'm giving myself about six months to do what I can to ensure that I deserve to become a real artist.

I think there have been some signs/prayers answered because the first weekend we got here, we ran into the Mooresville Artist Guild....and they were accepting art for their Fall Juried Show....I ended up entering two....mostly so that I could become a member and get involved in an artist community....well, last Friday was the Opening for the show and ceremony....and to my surprise, one of my pieces came in third! I was sooo happy because I really took that to mean that I need to go for it now....

Anyway, I could go on and on about my recent adventures, but instead....I'm going to write EVERYDAY......I have a feeling I won't be short of inspiration in my new town!
