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 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!"

Itty-bitty abstracts


I recently and seriously began fooling around with abstracts and although I am loving the freedom of them, as you can see I am still struggling with the structure.  I seem to really need structure.  It is hard to see in the images, but all of those straight lines are not paint but “built” small pieces of balsa wood and dowels. Adding some real dimension and tension to the unstructured texture it is sitting on.  More ideas seem to be blooming in my head regularly and I am so excited to be creating, sewing, painting and soon to be sculpting again. I did not understand how easy it was to have my attention (SQUIRRELL!!!)  and limited energy led into uncreative destructive areas of my life.  It will not happen again I cannot allow myself to need anything but the work that keeps me alive.  This….this is who and what I am and I am coming back to life!                 "Upwards Always" 16 x 16            "Releasing  Dark" 16 x 16
