art news...joy spilling over

                                                (Somerset Studio Gallery Winter 2012 )
My heart feels full and wide and deep with possibility and joy tonight. I'm published in the Winter 2012 Somerset Gallery...and I am full of happiness. Thank you Christine Olivarez, Jennifer Jackson Taylor and all the folks at Somerset...thank you, thank you, thank you ...for giving me a chance. I haven't been able to get my hands on a copy yet...but I am going to try every single Barnes and Noble this weekend!

When I think of how hard I have had to work-all of my life- simply to believe in mySELF, it makes me tearful and joyful all at once. There was a time when I couldn't claim my stories, my voice or my art. There was a  time when I couldn't even claim my psychic space...my very essence. But every tiny step of courage, bravery and truth-telling has led me to this very place. And for that...I am thankful...joy spilling over.
