My He(ART)-Full Life

YES!

" I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width, the depth of it as well" -Diane Ackerman

Things have been ever so hectic over here. In addition to the usual stuff I have also been busy getting stuff done around the house; dealing with contractors, handymen etc (not my favorite thing!) . Also immersing myself in painting...I am so excited with the direction of my art...I feel as if I am getting closer to the core of who I am and it is exciting, vulnerable, scary but...it feels good to say YES to life! To say YES to the fullness of who I am.
                                                              HAPPY WEEKEND!!

and so, so glad you've been enjoying broken open :) i lent it to a friend, and i usually love doing that, but i'm finding i want it near me at all times...to strengthen me, give me peace, hope...radical acceptance of life.

Soraya, I have a couple of very similar Diane Ackerman quotes highlighted in my files. I actually copied a couple of pages from the book because I loved them so much! Love how you feel your painting is evolving and love saying YES!!
