I did this painting rough and raw a few years ago I think.. inspired by a vogue magazine picture of a girl holding an axe 'just so' and in recent times while doing the Color of Woman course.. I was inspired to share her with my group and called her "Muse of Cut the Crap". I've just read a very long and lovely blog/share of my incredible teacher Shiloh Sophia.. her pure open honesty is SUBLIME. I am so opened up by that... and freed, and warmed.
FEMME SE OUVRIT: GIRL UNFURLED – VOYAGE TO PARIS AND THE ISLAND
Being around people who are so willing to be open and honest is the magic of life.
I sometimes want to write and rave.. and then I think... oh who the hell cares anyhow?
So long as I keep caring.. and taking time to hear what my inner selves want me to know.. that's probably more important really.
Solstice is making me all sentimental.. I love noticing the passing of moons and milestones, seasons and solstices ... and I'm also open to cutting more of the crap away from my thoughts, stuff and life.
that's it for this moment...
I have an appointment with a Mary Magdalene painting
and a commission that includes a large leopard print couch.
and laundry to do.
love Denise xo
ps.. wondering about teaching... my current thought... this morning ...
I can talk in a small group... when everyone gets to share... I need to grow into the role of teacher/leader... it doesn't fit me well at the moment.. its a bit like a second hand scratchy coat from the op shop... I'm not sure if a good dry clean will make it mine and soft.. or if it will never sit quite right. ...
there is wisdom in there...
I need to tailor make it to fit me perfectly!!!
love it when my own ravings

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
