Painting My Own Picture

I haven't always had a problem painting within the lines and following convention. I haven't!

I used to be a girl guide, you know. Well decorated, too. Sure, I cheated on a few badges, but crafts aren't exactly a critical life skill anyway.

But, now that I'm finished with business school, the blueprint seems to guide me to finding a j-o-b again. And, I'm not sure this picture is going to turn out how it was initially intended.

So, what's next? Well, after seven years of fantasizing about it, I'm finally going to ride my bicycle across Africa. Cairo to Cape Town. 12,000km over the course of four months. With strangers. Starting in January.

I'm not really sure what the whole picture will end up looking like, but this seems to be a start of something interesting. At least to me. But, hey, I'm the one who has to look at that picture every day. So, who cares if I paint outside the lines.

it's not art if you don't paint it in a style uniquely yours and different from most.

painting is really hard and kind of 'out of fashion', so if you're gonna do it, you better love it best. because maybe no one else will. so. you better. best.
