You are not alone

A whole community waits

To embrace us all.

Art Prescription:  It’s okay to reach out. We all need community. We all need to feel loved.

Winter, green bamboo

Graceful leaves nod at bare trees

Secret hiding place.

Art Prescription:  Have you ever come upon a tall bamboo forest in winter?  A canopy of green in the midst of naked trees. A secret hiding place. Thick and tall. Sunshine rays slip in. Smells like vetiver.

We must move forward

Across the fields of unknown

In search of better.

In this moment, now

I feel peace, content, and safe

A mantra for all.

As the trees shed leaves

So begins winter season

Birds sing renewal.

Art Prescription:  As we begin the season of Yin, going into the darker days, I have a sense of renewal. Cleaning the clutter from the year…preparing for the holidays and my open studio.

October comes in

With big buckets full of rain

Studio warm, dry.

Art Prescription:  I love the sound of rain on my studio roof. So soothing as I lay down watercolor washes. Big clouds hover over North Carolina, but looks the hurricane is going out to sea. Fall is upon us…nice cool weather.

Birds sing in the rain

They sing in the sun, they sing

Because they have song!!

Art Prescription:  I love Maya Angelou and have used her beautiful quote in today’s Art Prescription.
