Soul Meets Body


This one I know I have posted before, but it is so how I am feeling right now.

“I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel, feel what its like to be new”

I want the sun to wrap it’s arms around me and feel new. I want the water to wash over me and be cleansing of all the noise inside.

I know with the death of Robin William’s there has been more talk about depression. Unfortunately depression and being creative seem to go hand and hand for many artists. Right now I am in a bad cycle of depression. I say cycle as mine does seem to cycle. My brain chemistry sometimes makes things too hard or hopeless and other times life seems easier and better.


Feeling Good

Everyone kept telling me I had a good surgeon and I am saying thank goodness for him. Not even home 48 hours and hardly any pain today. Really amazed and grateful.

I have a cold and I am hoping it goes away quickly as if it doesn’t – I won’t be able to have surgery this week. I just want this over so thinking healing thoughts.

I have been in pain. I have a new health problem.  Different then my usual back/leg problems. Because of the pain, I haven’t been able to do anything. I have been on almost complete bed rest.  Everything is too much. So basically  I am crying and trying to just surrender and let go of what I would like to what is.  What this is…is a time where I need to have help.  Over the last several years – my pain has increased. I thought I had gotten to a place of acceptance of and learning new ways of doing things and letting go of expectations.  But now I have been needing to do it again in a deeper way.  I am thankful for the help from Michael and Wendy – I am blessed to have such amazing people in my life who know what to do to help me through tough situations. Right now is extremely difficult and I hope to handle it with more grace than I have as I wait for what will come – most likely surgery. Right now I cry because my words aren’t coming to me as the pain clouds everything.

52 Week Photo Project: Week 35


I have been sick which is why I haven’t been posting with August Break.  I did find that August Break actually made me less inspired. I used to post everyday on Instagram and with August Break, I felt like I had to stick to the prompts instead of whatever photo I wanted to take that day.  So I actually didn’t get a daily photo each throughout August. But would I do it again…yes. I think it helps me step outside my comfort zone and sometimes that is needed in art.
