From my Journal – Painting in Utah

Yes… I have been on vacation at Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks in Utah. We were traveling with friends, but did manage to get some photo shooting and journal painting done in between all the hiking from one astonishing view to another. So much INSPIRATION!

We also visited Dixie National Forest, Red Canyon, Park City and Sundance! WOW!

busy busy busy and i have much to process…

From my journals – Unravelling!

Some times the same message comes at me in different ways. This hasn’t been the easiest month here at the Fisherosa. Things have been breaking around the house, the car has been finicky and medical upkeep on old body parts has been taking its toll. There’ve been days I felt like I was unravelling… seriously coming undone!

And then a card arrives from my sister about how life just seems to unravel us… but how I need to remember that everything I need is within me, has always been, and will always be. I know this, but it’s easy to forget in the midst of a mini-meltdown. So thanks to my sister for the perfect card at the perfect time. I had to put it in my journal… along with some words from Susannah Conway’s blog… “Unraveling is not a bad thing. It’s not coming undone or losing control. It’s letting go in the best possible way, untangling the knots that hold you back, unwrapping the gifts you’ve hidden for too long, unearthing the potential that’s always there, finally ditching the labels and should-haves, and letting yourself be what you were always meant to be.”  Thank-you Susannah.

AND, I am so glad I have ART in my life… I did the pencil sketches here in my bigger journal while hanging out in bed in a mood. Doing art is, for me, a release and a coming home at the same time. It felt good. What makes you feel good these days?

And now we are falling into September! I started this blog one year ago!!! Time flies… Enjoy the new month!
