Colored Pencil on Paper and Acrylic on Muslin Series
When an abused dog is found she has certain behaviors. She feels afraid of people, the outdoors, being bitten and of loud noises. Makes being in this world a terrifying place.
I now know how scared I was and still am, sometimes.
The last two years with meditation, therapy and honoring my feelings I am finally practicing letting someone love me. It means letting someone I don’t know, care for me. It is also letting the possibility of the same person hurt me. Practicing feeling love today means learning how to honor our imperfections. To not only forgive but be willing to see the humanity of the situation in its’ true form. That we are all imperfect. Have always been and always will be. Through this experience I am starting to believe that love was here all along and that it is activated by allowing life to love me back to life.
