I will love you so much and wish nothing but your happiness. I will be quiet and listen to you when you need to be heard. I will forgive you even when you have done something you may or may not realize was not a good decision. I will drive miles to be there for something that is important to you. I will cheer you on and be supportive of your successes. I will keep your secrets. I will tell you how important and wonderful you are. I will not leave you when you have been angry or sad. I will comfort you when you feel alone. I will nurture your interests and make sure you are reminded that no one in the world is like you, and no one else has your vision. I will always have your back. I will give you time to relax, to breathe, to have space when you need it. I will make sure that your friends and family know how much they matter to you. I will care for your pets and treat them like my own children. I will make one change. I will make sure that it is myself, that I am focusing this love on now, and not someone who never really appreciated it. 

Today, I am setting myself a goal to finish and post pics of pins I finish today for ATown and work on the self-portrait I started months ago.  I think I know how to finish it now.
Here's to caring for your own health and happiness first and to creating.
Have a great weekend, everyone.  Mine started today.  :-)

New Ground

I've been painting a lot. I'm working on some quick painting sketches and some more complicated paintings. I am experimenting with whether a complicated plan with many layers more clearly expresses my idea or thought or if quick a representation does a better job. So far the jury is still out.
