Time for my annual love letter..
When I first started to do this,
many years ago..
I admit, it was hard to write things about myself that I loved..
It felt awkward and alien to me..
I kept hearing my Mother's voice..
inside my head..
rattling off a long list of
|Present sorrows wings are taking... Caterina Giglio, Art Journal Page|
I learned long ago that just because someone is family
it does not mean that they are good for you..
or on your side..
this month as I wrote,
I realized how much I have been through,
since the beginning of this year..
in just a few short weeks..
and how much I love about myself..
despite the circumstances..
and the situations..
we can still love family
even when we realize that we mix like oil and water..
but it is easier when they are not around us all the time..
Ingredients: Gesso, acrylic paint, water color pencils, pencil, fabric, ribbon thread, dry wall tape, paper ephemera, micro bead gel.
hopefully I have captured in the texture..
of this month,
the rough and soft..
the pain and the joy ..
the light and darkness of the moments..
the power of the pen,
and the openness of acceptance..
for the way it is..
The details of life..
sometimes rugged, sometimes soft..
