This week a conversation between myself and 2 new friends, (a woman newly exploring her art expression after retiring from a corporate career and a recently opened art gallery owner) was introduced during a lunch date.
The 2 women are Donna Belleson, emerging artist and Christina Heintzelman, owner of Gallery Blu in Harrisburg, PA. The trigger for the conversation was the question "how do you measure success?" We three women are at a crossroads in our lives. If we could divide our productive years into 3 sections, we would be entering the last section of those years. And so this also plays into the conversation of how we describe success. Along with that is a sense of merging a spiritual path with our work, and how that would play out.
While we looked at our individual paths, we also noticed the shared elements of who we are. We all agreed that we are facilitators and wish to engage the community on a larger scale through giving and nurturing with our work.
We all felt that this conversation would also facilitate a visioning for each of us to manifest a dream. We are planning to continue the conversation amongst ourselves and others who might be encouraged to join in. This may seem open ended at this time, but I welcome your thoughts.
