Life After the big “C”

I haven’t posted anything in quite some time….my mind was occupied on cancer treatments and such. Now that all the drama has passed I feel like it is time to continue with life after the big “c” took over.  First all the cancer is gone, and I don’t want to focus on the disease, I want to post about what it taught me while I was on the journey to wellness. I learned a lot about love, I learned a whole lot about strength, appreciation, kindness, endurance, and I learned who I am. I always wondered about my purpose and what I was supposed to do with my life….well now I know I am supposed to live it! I am supposed to be in the moment heart, soul and mind….present. Show up and participate. It was a year long journey that I am not sure I am done with yet, but whatever comes my way I was supposed to experience and I like to think that I did it with grace. I was and am surrounded by wonderful people who truly loved me through the toughest of times. My job and the only thing I had to focus on during this journey was being positive and keeping my focus on getting well…the rest was up to GOD and his plan for me. After all of this I am getting back to life as normally as I can and I find the zen part of my journey sometimes harder to hold onto, so that is my focus now, to maintain that sense of calm through all life’s storms and turbulence.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
