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!"

Following my own advice & eating my words....

Following my own advice & eating my words!  For many many many years I refused to hang work in restaurants.  First of all, art hanging that close to people eating, spilling and drinking is always a risk.  And, using my work to decorate their business with no appreciation or compensation felt almost abusive.  BUT…then I have always taught in classes “if the Universe“  presents  an opportunity…pay attention.  Even if it feels uncomfortable, even if hairs on the back of your neck are bristling, even if your first reaction is NO….remember this is the only way the Universe has to teach us, good and bad, they are lessons we need to learn.  So when this came up, again (and a lesson will return to you over and over and over again, until you learn the right answer) I surrendered!  Although it has been grossly different from art shows and galleries it has been an adventure…  
And by the way....Maxine is amazing!  The food and wine are crazy GOOD!
