I’m linking up with Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop and answering the prompt: “Instead of a resolution, some people choose a theme word to live by for the year. Choose a word for 2013 and tell us why you chose it.” This seemed fitting for me since I normally pick theme word(s) for each year. 2011 was the year of ‘Staying Connected’ and 2012 was happily noted as ‘Evolution.’
I think 2012 was the first year I realized that I actually have some creative juices within me. I never was really an artistic person when I was younger. I would fill about three pages of a coloring book with some crayon marks (most hitting outside the lines) before I decided I was done with it. I feared any school project that required thinking ‘outside the box.’ I was enrolled in ceramic classes, but I found a snake-coil-pot-with-a-simple-blue-glaze to be far from artistically tantalizing.
