This week on Friday, I will be going back to work at the Joffrey Ballet. As I mourn the close of my summer off, I feel that it has been a gift to be able to wake up each day and work in my studio for hours and hours on end without any other obligations. Truly a dream come true. It has brought me to realize how dedicated I am to my art and how much I want this to be my life full time. Until then I will squeeze every free moment I can into my studio. I am already outgrowing the size of my work space and I see that as a pretty good thing.
