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!"

When I expose myself....

Always an honor and so exciting to celebrate creativity of the awesome Artist’s Way creatives that have been on a 12 week journey of exploration and recovery.  The last minute preparations for Saturday’s opening are well under way.  In years past I grieved about the “production”, you know, hanging the art works, is there going to be enough food and wine, can I find enough linens without wine or paint stains on them, will it rain, etc…etc….  The past couple of groups I have found myself on my own creative journey and recovery right along with them.  Not so much the facilitator as just part of the group and a recovering creative.….putting my new hopes, dreams, explorations out into the world for the first time.  All of the sudden the worries about the “production” is fading, but the nerves that erupt when I expose myself through the art work are rampant!
