During my (second chance) art date with (my special new friend) Ronit last week, I started the above piece.
I didn’t really get very far. In fact, that was pretty much it (above).
I was eating (too much) of her (incredibly healthy and delicious) “goodies”.
I was talking (too much) and listening (with heart in hand) to her (gorgeous, well traveled, life-loved) stories.
But I had a chance to return to it yesterday, after a (truly heart-breaking) funeral of a (much too young) woman here in town; she was a doctor and fellow (soccer) mom. After that, (the second funeral in 4 days) and I thought of how much Community (with a capital C) really means to me.
Community with a couple of Facebook groups — What Did You Make Today? and A Stand for Art Journaling — keep me (deeply) connected to other creatives. An (afternoon) art date with one person can change my outlook. My gratitude overflows.
