Catch - You are it!

Gypsy mama says:

"On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just writewithout worrying if it’s just right or not.
Won’t you join us?"
    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
    Today's Prompt:  Catch


Life is like a game of Catch.   The ball is thrown your way you run as fast as you can to Catch that ball and breathless and pushing forward, overcoming the obstacles in your way it somehow lands in your hands. 

 You hold on for dear life ... "Please God let me just make it to the other side without dropping it along the way." You eventually arrive through tears, sheer determination, much prayer and finally some laughter .... thinking this was not so bad and breathe a sigh of relief as all those negative things are released and you hold onto the positives of that wonderful moment of achievement.

 But, Oh no ..... just as you think you are safe and have reached your goal, life sneaks up behind you, reaches out and once again says ...."You Are It!" ......... and so the game of CATCH goes on.

Be Brave - Be Fearless

Have been painting, experimenting and just releasing in faith what is on the inside to be expressed in my art. It is a wonderful and exciting journey that brings someting new each time. This is a HUGE step of faith in becoming fearless. I would like to thank all those wonderful friends, family and artists that have been so inspirational in being a part of this journey that is just the beginning.

Over the summer took a wonderful course with Jodi Ohl  (Sweet Repeats is where her work can be found) and have so enjoyed just stepping into something new - thank you Jodi for being part of my wonderful journey and wishing you all the best in your new season.

Yesterday in solitude and loss
Feeling fragile and raw
I faced the deeper truth of
Today’s hopes and dreams
And journeyed forth in
Truth, laughter, love
And grew wings to venture
Into tomorrow
