Remember the NEWS I had a week or so back...that I had some huge announcement?!?Well, I just received word, that the project is being shelved until a later date. : ( I am a wounded bird.
Maybe this is what the baby bird feels like when she leaves the comfort of the nest....she launches..she's in flight..she's beginning to soar...and then, ...what happened?1? She finds herself on the ground walking around... But this baby bird is already thinking .."now, what am I going to do to get myself up there, once again, into that big blue sky and soar amongst those white fluffy clouds...and umm...not to mention, the STARS!!!
Maybe I'm only on a "layover"... (I hate lay-overs, but the flight eventually gets to it's destination, right?)
Well, the project isn't a done deal. But, I was to be an artist featured in a wonderful published book. The author has done other fabulous books, so that's why I was so excited to be included! If you know anything about publishers, you would understand that they may suggest changes, before the book is to be published. Being shelved for now, might mean that those changes have to be thought out, written, maybe more ideas incorporated into the stories & etc.. So there is hope.
Why does s it always seem to happen to me, that when I get that big opportunity...something happens ..not by anything I've done but, the change of events means I missed that big chance.
Makes me think I need to be like that baby bird...Get up, dust myself off (mend my wounded self), and flap my wings...see if I lift off the ground a little. If I continue to flap, maybe a gentle breeze will come by and lift me...or at least blow me into a different direction. Well, what ever direction I blow to, or where ever the winds takes me, I know I will continue to keep my eye on that goal...to soar like the wind!
