I make no secret that I am on a healing journey. I am on a quest to find the joy and balance in my life that as an artist often eludes me. I have immense highs and lows that come with intense creativity. I just had the realization that I may not just “Get Over It!” but rather that the shadow side of me will always be there and I must embrace it and manage it when it shows up to stop me dead in my tracks. After I “dig out” of the hole, I face it head on with a crazy sense of humor. After all, Laughter IS the best medicine. Cherry Chewables preferred. Thank you. (Notice the shadow from bad lighting on the wall. Appropriate for a talk about learning to live with and embrace my “Shadow Side”.
