my heart is heavy as I write these words,
for my country, for the people and for my friends suffering
through this horrible disease..
|Detail from June Art Journal Pages, Caterina Giglio Hollyhocks..|
My June pages reveal the inner turmoil
that I have been experiencing..
I know I must create..
and give myself over to the act of creation,
I find this dark cloud hanging over me.. in so many ways..
|Caterina Giglio, June Art Journal Pages, mixed media.|
Perhaps you have felt this way too..
at first it was a stifling feeling of being stuck.
a lack of freedom..
Though we are safe and leave only
I know many are suffering
and this country is ripped at the seams..
Each day I rise ..
make my way to my studio
and take my materials into my hands,
it is the best way...
to release the concerns I have..
the creative energy moves through me,
onto the page
and each fiber of the stitch..
me to the source of all there is..
if for only
a few hours..
I will take them.

Be well my dear ones
and keep creating..
no matter how difficult it might be
focus and concentrate..
for art heals
and aways will..
