Jennie: I think I was always destined to be an artist. It's what I always wanted to be. I was lured away by the siren song of money and regular paychecks. I loved management and being in control, the sound of my high heels on the marble floors, but the truth is that I wasn't happy. I was working my way into an early grave. I like to think that if it hadn't happened I would still have made the decision on my own. But I would have lost even more precious time. Because of this accident I am home with my baby instead of working in the city, I have my husband at home caring for us both, I have work that I love. I have passion and happiness. It's hard to completely resent it! I believe things happen for a reason and that the universe just wanted me to be an artist. I wish it hadn't taken being hit by a car, but I'm not sure I would have listened to anything more subtle. I really did like the money. I would however like the pain to go away now though!
Thank you very much Jennie, you are a lovely person and I greatly admire your work.
