Ladies and Gentlemen, I present a Breakthrough!
I admit, it may not look like much of a breakthrough, but for me it is-- and, I'm ecstatic about it! So ecstatic, I can almost not wait to do it again. Yesterday, I drew in public. Right there, in the middle of the crowd, not hiding in the protection of my car. I was at the VA hospital, with family and while I waited, I sat at a table in front of this Starbuck's kioske. The table was tiny, maybe two feet in diameter and I was sharing it with two people so I didn't pull out the watercolors like I wanted, maybe next time. I still plan to add color, but I just had to show you! I was out in the open-- sketching! And nobody came and yelled at me or made fun of me or anything horrible! I lived through it, and actually, I wasn't even nervous! This is a HUGE step for me!
