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 disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"

Don't you worry about a thing...

Well…here it is!  Not my first art exhibit, but the first one that my focus has NOT been on painting pretty pictures and then selling them.  These pictures are about telling a story, hoping they will feel something. "NO" they are not serene landscapes, recognizable still lifes or ethereal life studies.  They are my guts flung on to canvas and feelings mashed into clay.   I hope I can make you feel something.... I cannot change it now!  It's out there...I cannot worry .

"Don't You Worry"   Stevie Wonder

I am holding on tight to Niel Gaiman's quote.
“The moment that you feel, just possibly, you are walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind, and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself...That is the moment, you might be starting to get it right.”
