A time to open our hearts and remember what we came here for…
This is my christmas card for YOU…all of you beautiful people here on Redbubble who have visited my work, whether just once, or many, many times…and made a difference to who I am…. you KNOW who you are.
My wish for you…… to find the core of what it is to be happy and at peace with your self…..and to love who you are….. because you are all beautiful, passionate, creative people who are lifting our planet with your art and your energy. And I see this shine in a unique way, in each and every one of you.
Now, I create for many reasons….. but sometimes, when I am in pain, or sad, or trying to make sense of something, I create even more……it helps me understand or heal.
Recently I uploaded several pieces of art, created at a time when I have been struggling with chronic pain from an ongoing disease in my legs and feet….. and it has threatened to bring me down and squash my spirits…I have felt the sadness, pain, loneliness and even a little fear….. I have also had to close down my art studio in Town because of this and felt a sense of “failure”…..suffice to say, I have created art out of a need to replace my pain and sadness, with a desire to overcome this and transform it to beauty and joy. And remember what I am really here for.
And you reminded me.
I left my images for a day and when I returned, I saw the flood of comments and felt all the love from each of you who had viewed, and I sat in front of my computer and tears flowed down my face. I am overwhelmed and did not know how to thank you….so I decided to put up this image as my message back to you….
How blessed am I to have a global family like you, because although I cannot physically see you, I can feel you, and your warmth, friendship and love truly does lift me up. So for your comments, your views, your wonderful energy that weaves it way into every thing I create and share on RB…… thank you…….
and for the creativity and sharing you bring, the amazing pieces of your world that come to me via this screen and thus become a part of my world to inspire and expand me…..THANK YOU.
I wish you all a happy holiday season and wonderful year in 2009….may the light shine upon you ALL ways!
