My Spirited Inner Child

My Spirited Child

For as long as I can remember, there lives an invisible very feisty little girl in my mind. She doesn’t care about how loud her voice is or how her wild ideas interrupt what goes on in this world.  For example,   I remember at a very young age lying in my crib and needing to take a nap while she would be squeezing out between the bars and running all over the house. Or while I was coloring in the lines of a coloring book, she would yell at me to color wildly  outside the lines and around the entire page!  We’d fight. I tried to snuff her out, but she always managed to always be right here in my head always talking and hoping I would listen.  Finally I just learned to ignore her. I live very well in this world without her. Thank-you very much! Invisible though she may be, I am still the visible one. 
And today for some reason as I sit here writing in my journal, I have allowed her to appear. After all, her black boots are really cute and she is still very young and feisty. I have aged while she has not. Perhaps the times has come to let her play a bit in this world afterall.

No photos allowed, so I took out my pen.......

Sharpie line drawing with a little CG magic.

We had a great time last night at Jazz Alley listening to The Stanley Clark Band. Daniella and Corey joined Alex and I for a night to remember.
