One year ago, I was reeling from the shock of having quit my dreadful job of two years (walking out before my notice was up because I had decided I could not stand one more minute of harassment and degradation from my unhinged co-worker), and Matt and I made the decision to move to Massachusetts because there was no time like the present to make the move and get out of NY and into something new (for me, at least). I am so happy we made that leap. I have a very long way to go before I can say I have succeeded at this thing I am trying to do here, but I am doing something I love and having a great time at it. It's a lot of work, but every step I take feels like I am headed in the right direction. I am looking forward to September and its many deadlines and opportunities.
Here's to every artist/designer/crafter/creative sort who has taken a leap of faith to do what they want. You are all an inspiration to me.
