Greta MIchelle Joachim: Fine Artist and Potter
Pieces of My World II
Today I turn 50. My birthday is always bittersweet. Thankful for another year of life, thankful to be surrounded by people whom I love and who love and support me in everything I do, happy to have the love of a man who still makes me weak in the knees when he smiles at me; which is every day, for the past twelve years. But restless because I look at the path my journey is taking and I cringe at the mistakes and chomp at what I still dream of accomplishing. I know that I must take this one day at a time and be grateful to God for where I am but the impatient in me longs to cut down on the mistakes and the procrastinating. I will learn to forgive myself, however, and enjoy each stage of the path; each flower and even the weeds.
This year has been full of new horizons; from hosting workshops to taking part in exhibitions like this one that has taken me so out of my comfort zone that I need GPS to find the thing.I must be crazy! Yet, here I am, about to embark on this wild adventure.
