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!"

Waiting for a new life to begin....

…and last years girls are gone…and I am waiting for a new life to begin… re-configuring that easel to accommodate a large vertical was a bit more challenging than I had anticipated.  I was at my wit's end trying to support it from the bottom…when the light bulb came on…and I figured I could support it from the top by attaching an old stretcher bar leg, making a T at the apex of the easel and suspending the canvas from the stretcher bars….Woo-Hoo! ….but I have to confess my heart is truly being ugly today and it is contesting every move I make….both me and this painting are anxiously waiting for our new life to begin…. but for now I am going to call it a day…
