Newness

ZorishaMarsha_Celine

These ladies are from a series I'd like to do (have done, am currently finishing) called Postcards. They're 4*6 watercolours. I did the first set of these in July.

A new year is beginning and I'm as excited as a person who likes stability can be; smiling anxiety. But it's good and I look forward to new experiences and journeys as I always do; having faith that it'll be alright though it surely isn't always alright.

I'm headed to Palo Seco for the weekend and will be ringing in the new year quietly, in rural Trinidad, on the beach, with the people I care about. I'm very excited. I'm a homebody, I have few close friends and I enjoy spending time with them and spending time with my family is important to me. I promised pictures last time and didn't deliver but I will this time!

A few things brought newness this year; new nephew, new job, new opportunities, new joys, new sorrows and a newness to the way I choose to love.

I'm digging this today; in remembrance of those (in many years past) I let go, those I chose to keep, the things I dragged out of unscathed, the things that left scars and the things that I can't yet forgive:

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” - Khalil Gibran

Keep good and happy new year,

AWESOME, FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL...shall I go on? You really should think about creating some rubber stamps. As an AfAm paper crafter, I pull my hair out looking for beautiful images such as these on rubber stamps...so I wind up using my own line drawings. your style is so unique, I think you'd do well with African American gals who scrap, do cards, etc. We are talking about this subject on Tiare's Ning Group...you should check it out:
