I moved to Colorado quite a long time ago from Cleveland, Ohio. I had a tribe there – a group of friends that I had real connection.  When I moved here, I became more shy and introverted then ever before (although I have been both of these all my life).  I have found some good friends now in Colorado, but it has taken me a long time to open myself enough for it.

It often starts with me being more compassionate towards myself.   In this art journal layout the image at the top is me.  So working on cultivating compassion towards myself so I can continue to reach out and find those connection that really are necessary to being.
