When I was a teenager, I was the keeper of secrets, and I had one friend in particular, who would share with me her deepest secrets. Her secrets were not the typical teenage 'I have a crush on johnny' secrets, hers were horrific, heart wrenching, soul destroying secrets.
At sixteen I didn't know. I didn't know how to do anything but listen and be supportive, but I also didn't know how to let her secrets go so they weren't killing me.
Perhaps if I had know that art could be my outlet, that exercise would relieve the burden, that hugs from little girls would lift your heart, I might have processed her secrets better, maybe I might have been a better friend.
But now I have a secret, a big one, one I can't share just yet, but one I am excited and nervous about. And now that the house of sickness is on the mend (finally) I can look forward to getting back in the studio again!
Hope your having a great week

What a start to winter we have had here! We have been so sick. My girls and I are now down with some flu. And while I am hoping we will recover very quickly, between two sick girls, a sick mama and a husband, who is probably going to contract something of ours, I think that instead of worrying about writing my blog posts, or facebook updates, or even that I haven't painted in the last week, I am going to take a wee break.
I am hoping it won't be longer than one or two weeks, but I just want to concentrate on getting us all better, because at the moment, I feel like shit.
See you on the flip side
