jellyfish and grad school
I thought I’d post this final scan of my finished piece “Ceto.” Ceto is the greek goddess of dangers of the ocean and of sea monsters! I just learned about her, and she is now my most favorite Greek Goddess. This week’s goal is to actually get my gallery page on this website working, so wish me luck! Hopefully Ceto will find a happy permanent place there.
I also thought I’d write just a little about a plan that has been formulating in my head. We moved to San Antonio from Austin in mid-January for my husband’s new job. The move took a lot of convincing for me because, well, I LOVE Austin. It has been my home for almost 10 years, and right now I am missing it viscerally. San Antonio is also cool so far, but I think not knowing anyone and working from home all the time has left me a little blue. Even though I really want to just move back to Austin right now, right now…we can’t. My husband has a great job here, it’s ideal for a newbie IT guy and he needs all the experience this new job can give him. So we are staying here for at least a few more years. So I have decided to pursue something I have always wanted to pursue but never had the time or money to because I was always working: an MFA in art! That way, we are thinking about this move as both of us pursuing our careers. UTSA has a great MFA program I am going to apply to. Applications aren’t due for awhile (I missed the Fall deadline), but it gives me something to work towards, and already has me feeling a little better about our stay in San Antonio. Okay, thank you for letting me purge my worries and plans to the internets!
