Run forward into the past.  Turn around and run back into the future.  They were always there holding hands with the present creating a perfect moment. Resilient.

You hear what you can handle at the time and even though you look for more behind the furniture and in the garage, you won’t receive more until you are ready.

Don’t be limited in your response to friendship to conflict to love.   It is all so vast and simple.

A dog barks in the distance, the clock ticks, a generator runs and once in awhile a car.  And me? I have shifted. Have I shifted? I have changed. Have I changed?

New Blog. First Post. Inspiration.

I created a few beautiful paintings back at the turn of the century.  In the midst of dragging myself, bruised and grieving through relationship ruin, I was compelled to pick up a brush.  All night, most nights.  I love those art pieces.  I don’t know where they came from and I view them with the deep appreciation and empathy I offer other artists.  The thing that I love most about them is that I don’t own them. They came out of me – not from me.  There’s so little baggage around them.

I’ve never been able to articulate that experience well.  Eat. Pray. Love. author Elizabeth Gilbert nails the phenomenon perfectly in her Ted.com talk about the difference “being” a genius versus “having” one.  This sets a perfect tone for my new website and blog.

Here are a few of the paintings.  This one’s called “Love Heads”

And this one doesn’t have a name, but a friend look at it, laughed, and said – “Well, obviously this is the vulva series.” Definitely a Story Doula kind of story.
