I am Safe

Scan 10

“I am Safe”, 4″ x 6″, $100

There is a belief I have: even when I feel safe, it is temporary, and I am not actually safe. Maybe that doesn’t really matter, because I also believe that where I am is where I am supposed to be. What I am feeling now is what I am meant to feel. So maybe safety is irrelevant. Sometimes I yearn to feel safe, and sometimes I don’t. What does safety mean to you?

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 233: Simply Noticing

IMG_2627

Grey sky.
Wet ground.
Wet cheeks.
No one around.

Heart limp.
Soft gaze.
I’m confused.
In a daze.

Want answers.
Finding none.
Is it the start?
Or is it done?

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 232: YES!

IMG_2595

Yes to the outrageous ideas that I have.
Yes to the challenging and physically strenuous activity you suggest.
Yes to the crazy, transformative, and scary experiences you have presented to me.
Yes to the firsts, to being vulnerable, to jumping in.
Yes to feeling what is coming up for me in this moment, even if it’s painful and difficult.
Yes to approaching new people, to being genuinely curious, and to deep listening.
Yes to admitting my dependencies, my insecurities, and my difficulties.
Yes to intense, blown wide-open, deep heart connection.
Yes to quiet moments of bliss.
Yes to all the experiences of my life.
Yes to me.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 231: Quiet

IMG_2545

You are so quiet, I barely even know you are there.

You are so still, I can almost carry on as if you didn’t exist.

You are so silent, I think I am dreaming of you.

But in all your quietness, your being looms large, you burst into my consciousness, filling my awareness with all that is you.

I don’t know you, but you are me, and I am you.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 230: Sense of Colour

IMG_2540

Colours bring me joy, they allow and support my self-expression, and they are my inspiration.

Dioxazine purple brings a harmony, balance and playfulness.

Phthalo blue imparts serenity and beauty.

Diarylide yellow join in boldly, with a happy face.

Payne’s gray acknowledges my sadness and insecurities.

Quidnacridone magenta unifies and adds a spark of excitement.

Nickel azo yellow is the quiet one, making friends with most others.

Pyrrole red is the bold statement, “Look at me!”

White and black are the extremes, the binary, the contrast.
