on this last day of 2016
i continue my daily
teabag painting practice
using various mediums.
journals of the year stacked together
on my night stand for now.
some sketches with micron pens,
a water brush and graphite.
and i wrote a letter about
something that needed to let go.
the letter was burned,
some ashes added to my journal
to honor its place in my life
and to say a final goodbye.
while for the most part is has been a full and
“I've learned a lot this year.. I learned that things
don't always turn our the way you planned,
or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things
that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together
the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken,
and I've learned that you can get through bad times and
keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.”
i am ready for fresh newness in 2017.
also, i say goodbye, once again, to my favorite
sight every year as i come down my stairs.
happy new year!
may your days be filled with
inner peace, joy that you love
and are loved.
