“ART IS THE CREATION OF FORMS SYMBOLIC OF HUMAN FEELING” ~Suzanne Langer~
Been bitten by the art bug recently. I blew the dust off my meager stash of art supplies for the sole purpose of painting an Angel for one of my beautiful Earth Angels. The month of January is the angelversary of one of her sons deaths…sadly July is also a tough month for her as she lost her second son as well. Yet, with all the loss and sadness she lives with on a daily basis, she has been an incredible source of strength for me…….so I painted from my heart. Just to let her know I was thinking of her….and in doing so, it ignited something within me…….
So I painted some more….
And then this morning..out came the chalks…….
I’m no artist…but something has and is shifting within me….
“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” ~Auguste Rodin~
and I like it 😊 Heck I even got the camera last week………
“To know ahead of time what you’re looking for means you’re then only photographing your own preconceptions, which is very limiting, and often false.” ~ Dorothea Lange~
Today marks 365 days…one year since he left. As I sit here writing, the Song, “In The Arms Of An Angel” has started playing. I BELIEVE ❤
I awoke this morning, looked at our photo and said “Morning Husband” …. there was no sunrise as the clouds are low this day……so I lit some candles, got my coffee, reflected, remembered and started writing….
It makes no sense
How can it be
One year ago
You left me
A year long journey
Of twists and turns
Battles of emotions
My heart still yearns
For a life that is past
But there’s no going back
My journey is forward
You keep me on track
As I’ve come full circle
This year of firsts
Our Love lives on
My road, I traverse….
Where I end up
Remains to be seen
My story still unwritten
My future unseen…….
Went back through my journal, to read my entry for this time last year. I had taken a Soul stroll on the beach, came home, pulled out my paints and painted a picture of a tree…..I’ve since gifted that particular picture to someone I’ve come to love very much, who has been on the other end of the phone every week since Jim died…(Lady C ❤)
Today, I painted another tree…..in memory of my Jim…..he colored my world and he still does from wherever it is he resides ❤💚💙💓💛
I miss him, every moment of every day….on this day, the last day of ‘firsts’, I will celebrate his life and our love……….
Tomorrow…….a new journey begins.
Hey Folks!!!! A friend on FB posted this this morning and it just has to be shared!!!!
If you like art in all it’s wonderful, different forms…You won’t be disappointed!!
Today’s prompt: Create a page featuring a list of the things that made you happy as a child that STILL make you happy today.
My list is short……there are just two things…horses and books.
I actually did a blog about it 2 years ago,,before I had any followers on WP…She Dreams of Horses
Anyway,,,,sitting here, pulled out my pad and pencil
