in response to catalyst number ninety-seven: When in life have you felt most alone? from the blog
my response is the following:
inside of the envelope a tag says;
Creative therapy is an interactive blog
This is the first project which I have participated.
When in life have you felt most alone?”
When I was living & working in NYC I was young, ambitions and ready to learn the ways of the “world” but what I secretly longed for - was home.
Everyone was to busy in their own lives to “take time for the coffee” it was a cold and lonely time for me, but I learned what was really important and what I really wanted out of life - it wasn’t a big fancy job or the coolest apt in the city. I wanted friends and most of all - my own family.
I rediscovered my love for the small colorful things in life and that’s when my scrapbooking & paper arts really started taking off. It was a lonely time yes, but looking back it was also a time of reflection and personal growth.
