I Deserve A Seat Too

I have found out from Mother Earth that Motherhood is not lost due to cancers. I have been waiting for the deep acceptance of this feeling so that the horrible pain inside the gut of my spirit would be healed. I’ve been telling myself this almost every day to get through each day emotionally for …

forgiveness

FOR – GIVE – NESS

Forgiveness | painting strokes back and forth over the names inside the hearts reminds me that forgiveness takes time for me; otherwise I don’t fully heal.

Art Vulnerability & Witnessing

Art Vulnerability & Witnessing

What I love about expressive arts (ExA)is there is no judgment, you don’t look at the art to question the artist on what and why. Because we are all human and if we’ve never been trained in art, we can be very self-critical, doubt ourselves for no reason and lose confidence as we are building …
