The Seed of a Dream

Little did I know the day I first took this road that I was planting the "seed of a dream". I'm going to do some paintings based on that phrase. I was joking in a group recently that some of the seemingly minor choices of life are the ones that ought to have Wagner music playing in the background. This is the road I took when I first went to visit the first Izannah Walker doll I was able to see in person.

It was the beginning of a passion for me, to gather as much information as I can about Izannah Walker and as many images of original Izannah Walker dolls as I can. I've learned so much about life while doing this. I've learned that you won't get answers if you don't ask questions. There may not be an answer for every question, but there are answers for many.

I've also learned that Maine is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Really, the beauty isn't always at the end of the road, but along the journey, isn't it?

What journey will you begin today?

Thanks, Dixie. I loved this post. No, we don't really know where those roads will take us, do we? I love popping in to your blog, seeing what's new and checking in on your Izannah explorations. Would love to visit Maine in person sometime. Take care

Yes the journey is what it is all about. How many times have we gotten something we wanted and it was no where near as great as the journey to getting it. My journey is with color, but then you knew that.
