Life's Journey


as one journeys through life
across meadows
up mountains
swimming rivers and oceans
through dreams
and
experiences

our hearts become
a  treasure box 
overflowing with a multitude of life's events
~

last week i had three skin cancer surgeries
on my face
and a few weeks before one on my shoulder
my heart now holds more experiences

i am well and healing
skin cancers removed

when it came to art
this experience was what poured out

~
sharing with Paint Party Friday


sweet weekend to one and all

  3. You are strong and wise, dear Tammie. My mom had a similar surgery years ago. It was concerning but she has been well ever since. My love and warmest wishes to you, as always.

    1. yes, these are not serious cancers
      and so good that they can be removed
      still quite unnerving to go through any surgery
      and the not knowing of how large the cancer might be when they begin

      so good to have it behind me

      sweet December to you

  14. So glad you got them removed. Hope all heals quickly. I always love in your paintings to see the connections between the figures and the animals and nature surrounding them. Looks like a beautiful world in which I would love to live ...

  15. Dear Tammie, I love this portrait very much, because it tells about a wonderful soul. This drawing really is an authentic description of your reality: connected with all these strong good natural creatures. I also see me with my lot of wild animals, which life sends to me to care for, wild animals, who keep me in movement and also find and give shelter and a heavenly message: Peace on earth! Does mean: Heart-peace. This person has found her heart-peace surrounded by a wonderful Universe.

    The wounds look beautiful. Sometimes our wounds can be our beautifulest jewelry...

    Healing - Blessing - Grace - Love!

  16. Before reading your text, I thought this might be a self-portrait. I can imagine the emotions and thoughts that your spirit goes through when something like this occurs. That is evident in your art work for this experience.

    I am glad to hear that you are doing well following the surgeries and wish you continued joy in life.
