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!"

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
