This is the affirmation I find myself telling my private/quiet/solo artist self this time of year. I am still getting opportunities to create but the circumstances are vastly different. For instance, I am still reeling from my recent adventures with repairing, costuming for, and running in Peachi the dragon at the Oregon Country Fair. I get a brief glimpse into the world of the circus performer, a vibrant, unpredictable, rapid fire reality. These technicolor moments leak into the dark quiet winter days to come, and feed me little tasty morsels of inspiration!
