into the quiet
I’m a push down

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY!
We’re so close, friends! I’ve been a wobbly mess this week…but today, my focus is staying calm. Breathing through my worries and fears. Trusting in the process of this part of living a creative life. Surrendering to the emotions that are climbing out of my chest as they emerge. Yesterday, I felt grief very strongly. I felt the deep shifts in my self and my family that happened after Nonna passed. I felt sad and scared…but I also felt extraordinarily loved and supported by so many. Such devastating paradoxical experiences!
For today…I’m doing my best to choose calm. Read. Write, but also do nothing if that’s what my heart needs. There’s a conservation of energy and spirit happening within.
I want to say thank you to you. For being with me on this wild journey. For supporting my wobbly heart and my pulsating soul. For helping me understand the landscapes of love.

“a bowl for my heart” is wonderful!
Hi again Vanessa,
I’ve been noticing the wonderful art images as well as the 2 line synopsis- I’m thinking these
would make a great book!
