Be Part of Something / by Mary Jennings

Don't get yourself caught in a pickle. Join some groups that help you get outside of yourself. I love to be quiet and solitary and that's why I encourage myself to be active with groups and clubs that either help me or I can help them. It's part of being a good society.  

Recently, I have been very busy and have been agonizing about how to manage my work and be in attendance in my groups. One group in particular, a painting group, I keep on being tobusy to attend.  I had to scold myself.  First off, it is a privilege to even be asked to be part of an established painting group and second, I need to paint ALL THE TIME.

I went, I struggled, I lived and most of all I loved it.  

Great time with art friends and a good still life.
