Mankle is healed. yesterday i went out without a wheelchair!! i used an old favorite black cane, well worn and muddled with confused emotions, mostly emotions of FREEDOM.... then after listening to a local artist couple give a talk, which was good, and so was their work, i even went out to dinner... holy moses wild woman me! so it is that i am feeling tall, and bold, and unafraid. i have been spending lots of time in my studio, and now that i become busier with the everydayness of life i will look for some more minutes to be with me. i am working on 2 big paintings, leaning into ugliness crossed with beauty, going in the spiral between what is good and what is bad, where the rules become invisible, where i am allowed to get totally lost, where there is silence beyond quiet, where the light shines below, so brightly yet that quiet insistence that beauty can become more infinite than what i can ever imbue into a painting... or trying to remember the depth that we have come from.
