Counseling people for the last couple of tumultuous weeks, taking in the turmoil people are feeling, post-election. In particular, jews, people of color, and my gay/lesbian clients. What do we do with all of the anxiety that has been stirred up? Get close to people, listen for ideas, read, write, help…..paint. Your unique voice, your unique angle, your view, from whatever vantage point–each voice carries the unique creative potential to to help this all move forward. Its going to take all of us coming together with those voices , creating real solutions, in solidarity. Let your voice be heard.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”  -Martha Graham

  1. I said to my wife on Friday, I’m listening to music again. You have to detach yourself from the madness, the ignorance, the hate, and live. I have to write to breathe, and to know what I’m feeling. Nice piece at just the right time.

  2. “let your Voice be heard” Yes!!
    I love how your painting “Pensive” captures the feelings that have encompassed so many of us Laurel.
    And Jenny’s painting – it simply made me smile and Laugh!

      1. yes, me too; I’m quite ‘raw’ with the IG skills. so if you comment & don’t see a response for a while its because I’m having a hard time with it ! 🙂 I’ll get there though.
