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!"

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!
