This has been a week of finishings. My first draft of my thesis went to my thesis chair Sunday morning. The portfolio of my paintings, sculptures, and poetry went into Creative Expression program chair on Tuesday. My painting, Encircling Creation, is done. And I am finishing the rabbit skull and moon spiral painting.

Its the time, I am reminded by a friend, to fill myself up with what I have done in the last year and a half. To acknowledge what I have accomplished and how that has changed me as a person. Its one thing to go through the process of creating. Its another to take in what I have created from this end of the process.

There is a sense of shifting, of new patterns falling into place. Of confidence in my skills and talents. Of hope. Of knowing I am on the path I am meant to be on.
