This is the first blog entry I have written using the Wishcasting Wednesday theme. Jamie challenges us to use our imagination to answer the question What do you wish to invite in? Ron and I have been using our imagination for the past nine years to create a life that makes us both happy. This lifestyle that we have developed is unique and unusual. We left our city life and headed to the hills of Arkansas and attempted to make a living selling our art on Ebay. We have been selling on Ebay ten years this summer. We started in 1999 and moved to our present location in 2000. We bought an 100 year old house and have slowly been remodeling it and adding to our gardens on our three lots. We are backed up to wooded, undeveloped property so we have a great deal of privacy in the back of our yard and it is not unusual for us to see rabbits, deer and even an occasional fox. We had a dream, we believed and some of it has come true. It has not always been easy, sometimes dreams require a lot of energy in the form of physical activity, self motivation and willingness to learn and change. We have seen some of our goals reached. Our biggest wish is to one day have an art gallery so we would like to invite the possibility of this becoming a reality and an association with people who might help us realize our dreams as we help them realize theirs. A trade of skills so to speak! At the moment a very hairy caterpillar is crawling across my computer screen (I have no idea where he came from but I suspect from the fresh flowers I cut and brought
in yesterday) and he has assured me that yes, even this dream can come true! Here's to all of your wishes and dreams come true!
