i'm participating in an online workshop called Inspire Your Life In 12 Days in hopes of allowing and finding inspiration in my new life. the first exercise is about solitude. i have been consciously spending time alone just listening and reconnecting to my intuition and inner voice. i'm looking for healing, forgiveness and what's next for me in my life. i feel so fortunate to be able to have this kind of time in my life right now. i get to decide what's next and i'm happy to let it unfold each day along with the healing and forgiving myself for shoving what i've wanted down (my passion, my art) in order to live a life that looked successful but that ultimately was not my passion.
so here's a photo of one of my favorite places to be... in front of mother ocean... she's been the most consistant thing in my life and she's always been there to forgive me, to listen to me or to just be with me. she's been the biggest healing force in my life and i love her to pieces!

Also, here is a mixed media, sketchbook painting that I did that reminds me of water, sky and the beautiful colors of them both. I'll use text when the pages dry a little bit more and share that later.
