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!"

Letting go of....
Sometimes things are not how or what you expect them to
be. I thought this part of my life would
be about holding on. Holding on to
relationships, love, time, memories, but what I am learning is that it is
exactly the opposite. It is about
letting go! That concept is just now
beginning to show up in my work. Letting
go of the tight images, the perfect pretty pictures others perceive as good art and I thought they
expected from me. I want to embrace the
emotions and the feelings that are present in that moment. It is not about holding on. I want to live and be free enough to let it go
and express the feelings. Letting go of
expectations and living it all.
