I’ve been dabbling with creating animations since my husband passed away because I found it firstly, therapeutic and then it became fascinating and I was curious and inquisitive which allowed me to continue digging further to uncover most of the tutorials and I haven’t even touched the surface in the past 12 years in PSP! So, that explains how intense and complicated the program is. It surely is a work in progress all the time for me.
I’ve been blessed with having so many online graphic ladies helping me along the way. They are a great group of ladies and part of my online family of friends!
Creating animations involves so much reading, so much practicing, and now attending online classes which makes things a little easier when an instructor is showing you the tools and the tips needed. Cool, I like it a lot. Did I mention the best part is that the online classes are free!
I have to continue searching for valuable possibilities to keep my mind occupied, as the best surely will not jump out and shout an announcement themselves. Widowhood really sucks! And, we all need an outlet.
Jewelry making is a lot of fun and I love creating great and unusual pieces but how much jewelry do I really need and I’m not interested in selling.
Three days a week of Silver Sneakers Classes are great to help stay healthy and also meet a new group of friends.
In life’s joys, in the problems, in the pleasures and in the disappointments, there are the seeds. Seeds that we plant along the way of our life’s journey provide innovation and progress. Creating animations was the outlet I needed to fill the void of my lonely evenings. It gave me the time to look and to wonder, and see value that’s waiting to be created. I search for things to create that my classmates of “62” may get a kick out of for the blog and that I created just for them and also my very first blog, Roses Are Read that encouraged me the most.
It makes me feel good that my friends that I have known all of my life are enjoying that I keep our classmates together after all these years. We are a special bunch since grade school and all through high school and now we are all approaching near 69-70, we still have each other. We are all scattered about throughout the United States but close because of the blog because they tell me so.
For me, it is great gratification that a classmate will email me or leave a comment that the blog makes them so happy that we are all still connected! I'm not sure they are all aware of all the hours I spend doing this for them but I do know they love it and that is enough for me.
Both of my Blogs keep me busy, as I also love to read the blogs of my blogger friends! Great people out there like my favorite couple, Sherry and Jack and so many more to name but the list would get very long. Yes, Jimmy from Miami, thanks for the weekly chuckles!
Now, I know where I am but I really need to find an effective pathway to where I really want to go and that is home. Things are not as easy as it seems. I’m working on it. The pathway may look different now, yet it is indeed still there.
