And just in meeting them openly, they become opportunities to raise my vibration closer to a frequency of who I desire to be.
As with our children, our pets, our elderly family members... as with every moment we share in relation to another being... the time shared with art making is an opportunity to slow down and be present, to offer the best attention we can, and to feel the waters of gratitude and connection swirling around and within our belly core.
