She Believes She Deserves To Live Her Dream

Shortly before Christmas a lady walked into Mercedes Flowers on South 1st Street and saw one of my mixed media Luna Chick pieces hanging on the wall and decided that she just couldn't live without it. She called me and asked if I would be interested in trading for a hair color and a cut. Excellent idea! I went and got my hair colored and cut yesterday and I LOVED the experience! Aimee, who works at The Cutting Room isn't your typical stylist. the vibration of hair. She brought up something I had never even considered while cutting my hair. She asked what was happening in my life a year ago because that is the energy she was cutting off in the bottom 2 or 3 inches of hair. Oh, nothing much.  My son was in rehab and I was going through about the 15th break up with Tony and my sister and I weren't speaking. Turmoil that I wouldn't wish on anyone. Now I know why when women go through a big breakup they always go get a new hair-do. Subconsciously, we know how to take care of ourselves. We talked about quantum physics. We talked about the vibrational power of words. She wanted my mixed media piece because it spoke to her and it actually made her cry. The words are powerful, as is the expression on the girl's face especially to those of us who have been through a time when we didn't feel worthy. She wanted her two young daughters to read the words every day in their bedroom. She can't even talk about the piece without crying because it brings up so much emotion.

Aimee also arranged for me to show my art at the restaurant he husband manages, Thundercloud Sub on South Lamar and Manchaca. I am moved that my art touches so many people. The other night Rick McRae, a musician that my brother used to play with in George Straits "Ace In The Hole" band told Phillip that he loved my art. I didn't know that he even knew I was alive. How cool is that? I have to remember these things. In living my dream, I bless others. My art isn't just for me. It touches so many people. It is a gift to cherish and honor.

Now I have to go create some more art..... Isn't life grand?
