Day 751-758 Snow and pain

This week has been tough. The weather changes affect my pain levels and this past Friday was really rough but I managed :D  Finished the turtle painting - love the way it turned out. Plenty of paintings and photos to catch up on.

Day 733 - 737 It's been 19 years

 I spent the day in creative meditation. 19 years ago today, I sustained a severe right hand injury that changed my life forever. When it happened, I thought my life was over - the prognosis was not good and had to say goodbye to a beloved teaching career.  Lost many friends along the way. What I didn't realize then, was the shedding of all those situations made room for new Dreams, careers, friends. Every creation, every twist of wire, splatter of paint or dot of ink is an affirmation of a win over the pain I have on a daily basis.

Over the years I have sometimes wondered the what if's of the choices of that day. What my life would have been if I didn't get injured. And every time I realize that I am exactly where I need to be and how happy being an artist makes me. :D

Thank you to  my sis and bff Anthee, parents and all my post injury friends who have helped me through my dark days and supported me during the good ones to continue moving forward. You will never know how much I appreciate you being here with me. XOX

Day 732 Day one of year 3!

I know I am not the only person to be happy to see 2012 gone.  The first of the year  always makes me review what the previous taught me. Having the tendency to hold on to "baggage" I made some decisions to . start with a clean slate and let go.
