Artfulacknowledgment.com is beginning to grow out of the toddler stage. Kitty Cleo has appointed herself to the vision board of directors. The wordsmith in me loves the play and artistry of the words, written, spoken and intentionally used to protray emotions, inspire growth and development and manage change. The vision board has always been a daunting task, as I thought I had to be artistic with creating pictures with paint and brush. More challenged that capable, in my own mind at least, I was elated when I was told to use images and any piece of 'artwork' that spoke to me. I could collect them to piece together to tell my story, at least something similar to what is on my mind. My stick people are still stick people. I am the one with the curly hair. That much I could manage. Kitty Cleo watched over it all, constantly assuring me that it was only a simple exercise in exploring my imagination. She seemed to be reminding me not to take it all so seriously. Let it just unfold. See where we are when we are done. And, by the way, we are never done. I enjoyed her company as I proceeded to create something that I continue to add to and develop. As a Chamber of Commerce board member, I reflected not to take myself too seriously. Just let that also unfold. See where it takes me. It's all an interesting journey, coming ang going. And looking at it from her seat on the board, I can see her point of view.
