What you see before you, is the inner workings of my mind, expressed through the clay and in the lines I etch with my black gel pen. Genius or insanity? you decide... I don't create this art, it creates me. It is my muse, my compulsion and addiction.

soo.... It's my birthday today!!! so stoked!!
Turning the big 30 today!
Here is a little blurb I wrote on my FB wall today that I thought I would share with all you lovelies:
In 1986, 30 years ago from today, our lives were in a very different place than now. But of course that speaks for everyone. But for myself and my family it was a great time of uncertainty. It was a point in my life-- and the beginning of my life, but a point at which we could not easily look 30 years ahead and see a future for me. Looking back on the photos and stories, memories that my family tells me, I would not have imagined being 30 today. So it may be another year, but to me it is a milestone. I am so blessed that my mother, father and sisters were there and were my voice when I could not speak for myself and were there to encourage my strength and my fighter's spirit. They did not give up on me. My father named me. We did not know until later that my name, Tracey, meant survivor. But today is not just my day alone, I share my birthday with my amazing mother. And if I had been born as planned it would have been in November and we would not have gotten to share the special day together. I look down the road with anticipation of the continuation of my journey in this place we call life.
Bascially, I was born 3 months premature, weight 1lb, 7oz at birth and according to the doctors wasn't going to survive and they made a point of telling my parents this repeatedly. But my parents would not give up and fought and prayed for me and I got surgery to save my life and eventually got through that year milestone despite my developmental delay and now I am the person that I am today. I may not be perfect but I have come a hell of a long way from where I started. I feel that is a heck of an accomplishment.
