Finding My True Love Again

It has been many years since I created a work of art. Sure, I write my stories and poems, but I am talking about my first love:Visual Arts.

Purchasing art supplies over the last 5 years or so, I kept telling myself that painting or drawing would be soothing, and calming. A way to express all the bottled up angst I have inside. But I refused to pick up the pen, the pencil, the brush. I had to keep all that pain for as long as I did. Thats what addicts and alcoholics do. Sit in our own *(&$!%!!

So, I made a huge step today, putting pen to paper!

Thank You God!
