We’re in the midst of a global pandemic.
Did I fail to mention this? We, the United States are also facing increased civil unrest. That phrase, “civil unrest” is insufficient.. and awkward. So much is going on.. none of which I have said about in this blog which has lain fallow for a year. How does one catch up on all that happened..who am I to comment on any of it. I paint happy things, not always as a distraction, but as way seeing the light, the positive, the hope that there are better days to come.. sometimes I do paint to forget it all.
global pandemic.covid 19. Black Lives Matter. Th names of so many black men and women killed by police..so many I fear naming a few , leaving out so many..it’s too many..it’s heartbreaking.. 2020 is heartbreaking is on so many levels. My own personal life filled with heart break and trauma, too much to explain or come to terms with..so I push forward instead.
Here is what I am learning..here is what I am working on.
Nature is a powerful teacher
My words create my reality.. use my words wisely, kindly
I alone am responsible for my response
Everyday is sacred
There is room and need for ritual every day.
Love..when all else fails.. love..
My presence and my actions effect the world around me
We are all connected
Bring joy into my life.. seek it.. do what I love
This is a bit of a ramble, I know. I remain committed to engaging with the world in loving and kind ways, my art, this blog, included.
blessings and peace to everyone ❤️
