Trees changing color

Trees changing color

You know how there are times in your life when you think you need a change.  It is a feeling that I get sometimes when my routine starts to become less fun.  Wanting change can be a good thing and sometimes wanting change backfires.  One of the times I can wanted a change I broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years, moved out of the little city of Bellingham to the big city of Seattle and met the man that would be my husband.

After 8 years of renting our little house I got a change.  Of course, now I don’t want to change, or at least I would rather the change come in a few more months.  This last Tuesday our landlord called to tell us that they are going to sell the house.  So it would seem that it is time to move.  Currently we are not sure if we should rent somewhere or if we can buy a house.

For me change is exciting but it also makes me anxious.  I think this is because usually when something changes I am not sure what to do next.  This is one of those things that adults don’t tell you about when you are growing up.  In high school, late one night at a Denny’s over a bottomless cup of coffee I had a friend that once told me, “Everything works out.  It doesn’t always work out the way you want it to, but everything works out in the end.”  I say this all the time to other people and I think that it is a true statement.  Everything will work out.

This is one of those “life” things that gets in the way of my artistic process and my regular routine.  I did want a change and now I have it.
