My first week in school is complete!  I had time to reflect on my life during my drive back and forth to school.   I spent 25 years as a dental hygienist.  I loved that time in my life but I certainly wasn't an artist.  I have always loved my camera, taken lots of pictures, printed many of them, and I've even put them into a scrapbook--many scrapbooks.  During all those years I never considered my myself an artist.  This quarter I am taking 3 art classes in addition to Photography Fundamentals.  All of sudden...Marcia Richardson....Artist!!  Keep expecting the unexpected.  Always keep the door open for your dreams.  They really can come true.
