Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

How Cool is This??? What a great unexpected little gift!

Am currently forced to sit relatively still while my body does it’s healing magic, and opted to catch up on some reading….that in itself is a gift! I am a fan of second hand books and the their prices!!! Amazon always gives you the option of purchasing used from non-Amazon book sellers. I heard of the “diary/journal” of artist Anne Truitt (1921-2004) that focused on her feelings and thoughts about balancing her life as a woman and artist. It had been on my “want to read” list for some time and last week I ordered it!  I do not think you can imagine my surprise when I flipped open the cover and found this.  What an unexpected little gift!

Yes...I know it is corny, but you just had to know I would do it...                            "Turn Turn Turn" The Byrds
