As I sit today and reflect on my events yesterday. I am overwhelmed with joy to be able to share a piece of me to others. To give a work of art to a person that has meaning to them. That helps the to express themselves without words. Oh what a great feeling that is. The work effort behind making the breast cancer awareness ribbons was so little compared to the emotion behind someone sharing a piece of their story or their relative story to why they are purchasing the ribbon. It makes me happy to be a part of their life in this way.
To end the evening, was a painting class that for me was not just about entertainment but relaxation and seeing painting as a therapy for some of the painters. We of course listened to our music, talked, laughed and sipped on our favorite beverages. Looking at each of them painting their Color LIlies; where some became so relaxed as to paint in their own style and technique. Through my instructions they were able to get the basis and let there creativity go from there. For that moment in time..nothing else mattered but the paint and brush. Focusing on just that in that moment is a peaceness that I love. So, one day find your therapy; painting,dancing , sing or writing. It does help with the balance of life. Looking forward to the next class.
