Let the music play

This canvas woke me early this morning, a stored, unfinished relic of yesterday. A long ago yesterday. Thirty two years of yesterdays. How did he make it through all the moves. How did he make it through all the loss. How did he survive & why. Apparently he has something to say. I'm not sure, if he would brave this journey with me to only be silent. Years ago he spoke to me from a magazine. Then, he started to show up every time I went to church. He keep evolving, spinning, twisting ... till finally out of fear, I put him in the back, I stored him away. Cause he had WAY too much to say.

Today, I will begin again with him. I'll put a tune on repeat, till I can feel the beat. Let the music play ...

edit ... it's is Friday & Jennifer's Sneak Peek Fridays are back! She just redesigned her blog on wordpress & it's a pretty clean slate. I love white space!

  5. Oh I do so hope you finish him!!! I'm just dying with curiosity to see the details of his hands and what he holds.

You just gotta love this creative go getter Laura ... I'm Thankful to Laura for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ...  The story of my studio is tied in to my cancer. Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
