My Awakening #8/30 Art That Heals
"Dancing Clouds Day 08"
Healing takes time and patience. Coming out of toxic painful situations aren't healed in an instant. It's a slow evolution on a road less traveled. Our culture demands instant satisfaction, quick results but the circumstances of our lives just don't work that way. It has been one full week since I finished up the school year teaching art to 525 different K-8 children each week plus adult pottery students. I am so thankful for summer break and the opportunity to just sit and paint for the simple joy it brings. My hands are missing clay, and I hear earthenware relief tiles calling my name!
