Blue in the face from
Trying to be heard, the rose
Became a daisy.
Art Prescription: So why not be a daisy in the first place? Did she think a rose was better? When we find ourselves projecting, over explaining (boy that takes a lot of energy), feeling defensive, being judgmental, it’s time to dust off our boundary lessons. When we feel we have reincarnated the goddess Kali and start on a destructive rampage, it’s time to dust off our boundary lessons. From Pixie Lighthorse’s Boundaries Boot Camp with Mountain Lion:
“In healthy relationships, a boundaries practice and language feels like self-care. They might feel more like good, sturdy fences in less-than-healthy ones. You can still see over them. Energy can still pass through from a safe distance, but trespassing is not permitted.”
Reach for the sun dear daisy, grow and be gracious. We cannot all be daisies!

Thank you Jodi…art Rx for me.
How did you make those circles in your painting? Was it with the rim of a glass? They look great and really tie the whole painting together!
Roll, baby, roll. Great message here along with your artwork, Beverly!
