Since most of my day is spent caring for my husband and tending to his needs, my art time is very limited. I've missed my friends, my images and colors, and my creative time. Although the healing process has begun, the burden of months of caretaking has taken its toll - physically, spiritually and mentally.
Having heard the phrase: "Art Heals!", in an effort to heal my spirit, I decided to begin a new art project. Over the past few days I've poured my deepest thoughts and rawest feelings into the pages of a new journal. No thought or emotion is "off limits". This journal is a safe place for me to bare my soul, shed healing tears and assuage my exhausted spirit.
After just a few days of writing and creating, I'm beginning to feel "lighter", and my colors are brighter! This is a much healthier alternative than eating tons of chocolate or drinking wine, and I'm realizing that, indeed, "Art Heals!"
