Finding Freedom

Updated: Jun 19, 2023

I’ve spent more than six decades just wanting to be free. I’ve lived as daughter, sister, lover, mother, wife, and friend. I’ve been both student and teacher, creator and destroyer, employer and employee. After a lifetime of doing what I had to do, it’s now time for me to do what I want to do.

For roughly 20 years, I have loved setting up my booth and interacting with the public. I will miss that aspect of the business. I have invested a lot of time, money, and effort to create quality products and present them in an appealing environment. There has never been any guarantee of success, but the physical labor has become burdensome, and unpredictable weather can be harsh on my body and my finances. It’s time for me to work smarter.

Last October, I accepted the challenge of establishing and managing Triangle Arts Market. It was necessary, but it wasn’t a part of my plan. I have enjoyed working with these talented, dedicated, and ebullient vendors, and I appreciate their trust in my leadership, but I’m ready to be responsible only for myself. At the April market, I will Celebrate my “retirement” with this delightful group of people and anyone else who cares to join us over the weekend. It’s time for me to move on.

I am eternally grateful to those who have encouraged and supported me over the years. I’ll never stop making Art, but I will make better use of my online platforms to share my work, maintain old relationships, and develop new ones as well. I miss gardening and cooking and painting and even routine housework on a regular basis. I miss having time to just relax with family and friends. I have a small backlog of custom orders and commissions, and then I can choose what I want to create for the sheer pleasure of it. Or I can do nothing at all. It’s time to find Freedom.
