Remembering You

Remember that no one can do what you do, the way you do.
What you do is needed and wanted.
Remember that you have a unique purpose that has always lived within you.
And that it will continue to call on you until you say YES!
Remember that saying YES will call upon you to become more than you are.
And that this is part of the bliss of life, to become the most YOU that you can.
Remember that the key is to keep going no matter what.

On Love, Greener Grass and Kahlil Gibran

When I was but young in my relationship – before times were twined with dark and light, hope and despair and words exchanged we both wished were taken back – when I was young, I read this poem of Gibran when looking for Love poetry for my wedding day. I hoped what he said wasn’t true and turned my eyes from the page, looking instead for something more palatable for a wedding reading. Well, today I have come across it, at just such a moment when I have turned my heart towards my husband like the sun and moon turn towards one another to light each other up.

I believe art is a spiritual practice

I am an artist who creates my work as a Spiritual Practice.
I think of my paintings, which I call Sacred Art, as: Prayers for the world; Offerings of love and hope and rest; Alignment with wellness and beauty; Devotions of gratitude and praise to the Divine; A most delicious outpouring of my soul.

Everything I create is rooted in my desire to ease the suffering of the world. Some of us serve in soup kitchens. Some of us are marching. Some hold the hands of the dying. Some of us teach. Some fight. Some pray. And some of us create art.
