A tricky one to accomplish.
“Life begets energy. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that we become rich.” –Sarah Bernhardt
I am grateful to have an inordinate amount of energy. It creates more energy whenever I let it fly. Responses vary. People cannot help but react in various ways: shock, joy, repulsion, fear, connectivity. I could go on.
My energy is grounded in my joy for life, and how loved and supported I am by my husband and close friends.
I had to let go of outside voices in regards to my creations. The process of creating my greeting cards and art journal pages generates an almost Zen state: color combining, finding that mixed media alchemy and drafting just the right prose. The world does not intrude, gazing from afar. The finished pieces? Joy and pride intertwine.
