Re: 12 years, but who is counting?

Karen,

It is very brave of you to tackle that old "Everest" from your past! I am betting you will surprise yourself and enjoy the challenge. It is nice to hear you are well and settling into retirement life. Those second chapters in our lives can be wonderful! Good luck with the class!

Laurel

Re: 12 years, but who is counting?

Thanks for your kind words Laurel. I decided that if I was going to start doing art again that I DID need to go back to Everest !

Class number 2 is coming up this week and I look forward to it, although I will say that some of the clss assignments in the first class (well, one in particular) was very challenging for me.

But, I am going to give this a try and do the best I can. Thanks for checking in and take good care ~~~ Best, Karen
