The Many Faces of Experience

I love this quote because it can either make me laugh or make me cry. I have always learned things the “hard way” because I knew no other way. So many lessons have been learned within the most brutal of events and I am forever scarred by my experiences. The bright side of all of these scars is the strength that they have brought me. The emotional skin is tougher and stronger than the original. It speaks to my resiliency and courage and the fact that I have survived. There were times when I didn’t know if I would be able to actually face another day here. During those times I thought of the greatest loves in my life and knew that they were worth the effort. I held on for what was important to me and in the process discovered the ultimate happiness. So my artwork today is reflecting on the many faces of experience and the stories that these spirits tell. A whole range of colors and bright spots mixed in with dark places and life changing events. I could spend hours reading these stories and each time I learn something new. The heroine of my novel is ever present and watching it all unfold as it was meant to. She is taking a minute to reflect and then moving on to the next colorful adventure. Namaste πŸ™‚
