I started this blog because I needed a place to share my thoughts . I was not fortunate to marry a man of my dreams,(I thought I did), give birth to “normal ” children and live the good life (whatever that means.).
My story is a long one and I promise not to share it all now. For now I will simply say I had twin boys who were born two months premature. My one son fortunately developed mild learning disabilities and my other son suffered from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy.
While I was struggling to care for them and advocate for their needs, I chose to ignore verbal and emotional abuse from my husband.
Now 42 years later and getting therapy for anxiety attacks, only now was I strong enough to dig deep down into my soul and reveal my secret I was keeping from everyone, including myself.
My inspirational mixed media collage paintings are my way of expressing myself to heal and find who I am. I am learning so much about myself and who I am as a woman, artist and writer. It is my hope I can reach people in the blog world who finds my paintings and music as a healing process also.
This is enough for now. I will share more in the future.
