I've missed you all.
Despite difficult days - the sun still rises.
And what a beauty it is... wouldn't you agree?
No adjustments made to the photo...
it was actually this yellow.
First of all, thank you.
From the deepest of my heart - thank you all,
for showing me
that you are there.
That you understand.
Mom comes out of the hospital today.
We never know for how long,
but none of us really know
whether we'll be here tomorrow or not, do we?
The more reason to take everything in while we can,
to taste everything
to touch everything
to see everything
to be grateful for what we have,
for who we have
for who we are...
and for sunrises and sunsets.
When i went to the mail today,
i found this in my box
and it made me smile...
A wonderful gift of speciality papers...(chinese papers?)
from the lovely Angelia
all in a beautiful hand painted envelope.
How precious is that?
I can't wait to use them in my journal
THANK YOU Angelia... xox
During the past few weeks,
I spent very little time in my studio.
My heart just wasn't in it.
And then a few days ago,
I began to feel that stirring inside...
the one that calls for me to make art,
to create something.
The one that gets more persistent
as every day passes...
The one that reminds me,
that despite what happens around me,
there is still something inside me
that that needs to be given
and within 30 minutes - a new beginning...
only after i had it all on canvas did i notice
At least i see two hearts.
It's only the beginning and i'll keep you posted
as it progresses.
It was good to have the brushes in my hand again. :-)
Kurt is watching on the sidelines. ;-)
I'll leave you with a video from someone that i love,
Loreena McKennitt - one of my favorite Canadians. :-)
The words in this song hold a particular meaning.
Back in 1998, she tragically lost her fiancé, his brother,
and their best friend in a boating accident.
She said she would never perform or record again after this.
But I'm guessing she felt the same stirring inside,
calling her to make music,
to give her feelings a voice,
to create something...
I'm so grateful that she listened to the whispers...
Wishing you all a happy, healthy weekend.
