Tuesday’s Textures…

They often tell me I am Brave and Creative and Imaginative, and perhaps I am. But I often just see myself as inquisitive,  but shy and scared. “Fear is the Dream Killer” – Seth Godin  This is so true, there were times when I did not do something because I feared people would ridicule me,…
