Alright, alright, alright...!

Somehow, reciting the American actor Matthew McConaughey's tag-line seems quite fitting in summing up the day, the week, the year so far, because it's been quite all right!  Granted, I have to qualify that with the sad news that others shared with me today of recent, unexpected loss of loved ones, and my thoughts are with them.  Hopefully, with time, their tears of sorry will be wiped away with memories of joy.

On the up-side, today was also a day of encouragement and excitement.  In conversation with a co-worker whom I'm fortunate to call a friend, we were talking about our various artistic interests and how one goes about the pursuit.  Sometimes, opportunities are made to us, but equally - if not more so - we have to make those opportunities for us.  And when opportunity knocks, answer the door!

As I saw someone post on Facebook the other day, "Don't look back, you're not going that way.".  Thus, 2014 has really begun.  It's going to be quite a trip in every sense. I look forward to and thank you for sharing the ride.
