Its' a heart thing..
In my family...
I had Rheumatic Fever when I was 6 years old,
I missed the entire second semester of first grade.. and
It left me with a heart murmur..
My Father and my Uncle both died of congestive heart failure..
My sweet Auntie has been challenged with several heart issues..
My dear cousin is right now recovering from
open heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic..
my brother died of a self inflicted
gunshot to the heart...
so the symbol of the heart, to me is more spiritual than romantic..
it represents ...
life flowing joyfully
If you have followed
my blog for any length of time,
then you know
I write myself a love letter..
I approach Valentines day with the understanding that the more I increase my self love,
the more joy will flow into my life...
the happier I will be..
makes me uneasy..
I will say it,
not my first color choice..
if you know me, then you know I would be happy in
Goth black everyday of the week..
and like Zuckerberg, I would wear the same thing each day..
so I am stretching here..
going deeper and farther ..
is a good thing..
ingredients: gesso, acrylic paint, pencil, pen and ink, paper ephemera, paint pens, thread, glimmer mist..

See you next Tuesday...
