It just dawned on me couple days ago that 2013 was the year of the snake, Arlin actually brought home a coloring from school (as the Chinese new year begins in February instead of January)...I was born in the year of the snake. Thirty five years later I feel as I'm evolving quickly into a new being, setting forth some of my dormant ideas. Taking chances to step out of my comfort zone trying to not be afraid to share my art with the world (this is harder for me than most may think) I guess in a way you can say I'm shedding my skin. I also find it rather ironic that I just happen to be opening up my lil' shop in the year of the water snake. Call it a sign......?
My dear friend Abby sent me a link to Mysticmamma's blog....here are my favorite blurps that I jotted down in my art journal:
"Nothing is as it seems- a possible theme for 2013"
"The snake feels and senses it's way through life and represents spiritual re-birth, elusiveness and exploration of life's mysteries."
"During snake years, our concerns turn toward inner-growth, spirituality and discovering the reasons behind things."
"The water snake 2013 paves the path for re-birth, new beginnings and transformation as she sheds her skin"
"This year let go of all attachments- emotional, mental, physical, financial, & spiritual that may be holding you back. Transform them, like the water snake, into something of value that will help you move ahead to the next level of your BE-ING"
"As with anything, you must research your past to detect patterns and behaviors that no longer work for you in order to change the course of the future."
