life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

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!"

Being an artist means....

I took a lesson from Neil Gaiman….

“And when things get tough, this is what you should do.
Make good art...
I'm serious. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art.
Leg crushed and then eaten by mutated boa constrictor? Make good art.
IRS on your trail? Make good art.
Cat exploded in the microwave? Make good art.
Somebody online thinks what you do is stupid or evil or it's all been done before? Make good art.
Probably things will work out somehow, and eventually time will take the sting away, but that doesn't matter. Do what only you do best. Make good art......Make it on the good days too.”
So...Did it make things any better...no…
but I lived through it, and I will keep living through it, until I don’t.
