I let this piece develop on its own- not much of a plan other than a landscape and maybe a fence. I had a hard time intially deciding on the phrase, which was the very last part I added. I've been thinking a lot lately about my attitude. I feel like I used to be such an optimist and so determined. Now I'm more cynical . There are things about myself I'm not happy with, but there's nothing that's really out of my control to change, so why not change? I was considering giving this girl away, but instead I think I'll keep her as a reminder of the attitude I should always have.
