Daily Prompt: The Artist And The Archaeologist


When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected?


At that age all I wanted to be was an artist. The walls of my bedroom were covered with cartoons, Snoopy and Charlie Brown being my favorite. Construction paper and masking tape were my friends, along with pencil crayons and cardboard.

The other thing I wanted to be was an archaeologist digging for lost treasure, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When I was around ten or twelve, I buried a small box of trinkets so I could have the fun of digging it up. This part of the quest I found rather boring, because I already knew where the treasure lay. I also buried a dead mouse, but never did find the bones, that was very disappointing.


I have been an artist my whole life, and have dabbled in many different mediums. I don’t make my living at it, but it will always be a passion in my life.

I didn’t become an archaeologist, but also remain interested in anything to do with this field of study. The very mention of the word Egyptology, and I’m still conjuring up treasure digs in my head.

For me, these two passions will always be connected, they have defined who I am; who knows, maybe one of these years I may be lucky enough to develop an ancient curse of my own, 🙂



Daily Prompt: Kick It


Well, let me see………..yesterday I posted my bucket list for real, 10 things on it, so I would have to say number 11 for me would be doing the first 10… does that make sense?

And by the way, today was my last day at work, I’ve had the same job for 11 years, so the Daily Prompt for today….. kinda weird huh??

When I left work today I felt like that scene in the movie  “Chariots Of Fire”, the one where they are running on the beach… you’ll know it if you’ve seen the show.


Not sure why I felt like that today… maybe because of the sense of freedom I feel.

Thanks to those of you reading my posts… I really appreciate it… plenty more to come!
