I’m a woman out to show that transitions are about growth and that ageing is not about retiring into the background. If this is the autumn of my life, then it’s a time of harvest and celebration.
I began my life as a Maker, it probably began as soon as I was able to place one block upon another. The ‘late start’ is in taking being a Maker seriously . . . giving it the capital letter it deserves. Over the years I have acquired a wide variety of skills, some through need and others through simple curiosity and now that I have resigned from the paid workforce, I am happily pursuing Making with creativity, originality and with increasing discipline.
It is never too late to make a start, it could be argued that starting is what we do every day, all the time, at every moment. Each moment we can make a change, begin anew or continue unthinkingly with the old. I choose new beginnings as I move through my life, I savour what I have and move on to fresh experiences . . . few rules apply. Join me as I explore this next stage of my creative life.
