I dreamed about my own studio for a long time. I shared a space with another artist for years, but I felt ready for "a room of my own". I wrote that dream down on paper, in detail. And since I was dreaming, I included EVERYTHING I thought I might want. Everything.
This fall I was delighted to be offered a space that I loved. It had everything except the balcony/deck. Well, at my Open Studio celebration in March it was pointed out to me that I had a fire escape. So I do have a balcony! I just needed to broaden my criteria. Enjoyed lunch out there today!
Pay attention to those dreams, and keep those criteria flexible, you can't anticipate the wonderful things that may happen.
