I Feel Like a Million Bucks

I responded to a friend's email today and I said, "I feel like a million bucks. Have you ever heard me say that?" Well the truth is I haven't felt this good in years. I think I am finally getting my health on the right track. I am happy. I had a wonderful lunch date with a new friend today. We laughed and had a great time just being together talking, being silly and enjoying the time spent on a Tuesday noon in a quaint tea room with delicious food.


Lunch by artist Itzchak Tarkay

After lunch I stopped by an art studio Creative Concepts. It is in lovely Galloway Village here in Springfield, Missouri. I am enrolled in a beginning acrylic class starting next Monday night. The owner/instructor Juli Bland was there to greet me and we hit it off immediately. She is upbeat and talented. I am so excited about her class. I got to see the project we will undertake. I really enjoyed the vibrancy of the studio and the art work displayed there. My immediate impression - talent in abundance, with four instructors each teaching their technique to the lucky who dare try.

I want to go to bed to tonight and have it be Monday tomorrow. MONDAY tomorrow, I know you are saying bite your tongue, stealing away a whole weekend over an art class but it is honestly how I feel.

Monday Funday I can't wait! I will take a photo of my painting and post it no matter how untalented I turn out to be. I just don't care, right now I could take on Matisse. I just hope I can translate these feelings of happiness to my painting. Wish me luck!
