Nearly 45 years of "heART"

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Years ago... in fact, when I was born into the family I have, my role; my duty; my responsibility to all was to "let my little light shine!"
And how I have best done that was with my Artwork.
Not that I didn't do many things, but this has been my passion, and my joy to share.
In this photo is a "Botanical Study" of roses...
a portion of a drawing class assignment given in school so many years ago.
I'm so glad I've kept these things to see "where I've come from".
I understand now why I love "details" so much.
And yet I am at a time in my life where I want to loosen-up and add lighthearted wings to my brushstrokes.
I think this must somehow be a metaphor for where I am in my emotional, spiritual, and physical time in my life too.
It's time to be even more of the ME that God has made me to be.
No more striving,
No more angst.
It's all about just going for the GUSTO!
It's OK to live life with unbridled enthusiasm as long as it's done with awareness.
I will make *more* mistakes along the way, but I will endeavor to even do that
with joy in my heart.
There will be PEACE and CONTENTMENT...like the simplicity of the rose.
Each leaf, thorn, petal, and spent bloom having served it's purpose to bless others.

May your Easter be full of hope for JOY every day, no matter what the life experiences.
