In my den hangs a charcoal drawing of Ho Chi Minh I drew back in the seventies. That drawing has been a symbol of the creative spirit that lies within me. Now that I am in the second half of life I have time to nurture that spirit . I have been blessed to work as an apprentice with Dawn Soltysiak at The Khnemu Studio working in clay for several years now. I am just starting to find my voice. It is not enough to know you have a creative spirit, knowledge, skill and courage must be developed for that spirit to speak. I heard it said once, that we should not leave this Earth with the talent the creator gave you still in your pocket.
