Spring really is a new beginning for me in so many ways..
As a recent widow again, there has opened new windows, new doors, that allows for all the
ideas and plans within, to come out and begin to grow...toward whatever may be, because
we neve know what will be...we can only work on short term situations and make the best of
what we have and I have so much..I've come through grief, feeling, I think, the way my
husband would want me to feel, like I have a future in whch to look forward and a center
grounded in peace.
In a large family of loved ones who wish me the very best..in my own heart and mind
choices...all my own.
At an earlier period in my life I felt the need for counseling and during those sessions I was
assigned the job of drawing a portrait of myself...It turned out to be a decent likeness but I
was shocked when the counselor pointed to the anger he saw in my eyes...he was right and
I hadn't seen it even as I sketched while looking at myself in the mirror.
That was years ago and I have come through that time also with a new outlook.
I have drawn another sketch of a nymph like person, the one I feel like, lighter, and with a
peaceful perspective. As time goes by, I will add to the picture, some color, some shading,
whatever I choose because thats what I am about nowadays...doing whatever I choose.
I've recently taken a photography class and have signed up for a watercolor class and others
that I thought interesting. My little inner nymph is growing and enjoying...Hair flying,
running, but still stopping to smell the roses...
There will be so much to share and SHEDDING LIGHT is a wonderful place to do it..
