The Banff Centre was great. Really great. I just don't feel like talking about it. There are so many more important things to say.
Wake up to the beauty all around you. Notice it. Open your eyes to it. Allow yourself to be moved by it: The majesty of the Rocky mountains, the clean, crisp air, the kindness of a stranger, the taste of an apple, the sound of music, the generosity of a friend with purple hair and a new sense of hope - A hope that reminds you: Just because it hasn't happened yet, it doesn't mean it will never happen.
But most of all, wake up to the beauty within yourself. You are here! Alive in this moment. That, in and of itself is a thing of beauty.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
