After turning and twisting into a pretzel over the past few weeks over what to write on my first blog entry…I got it!
Simply…as with anything else in life, one should paint, draw, write and live what reflects the deepest and truest aspect of our Being.
For me, it means expressing through art my deep and profound love and appreciation of the natural world.
As an animal advocate , anything I can do to advance their cause and make their voices heard…I feel profoundly blessed to do so.
The first time I read this poem I was 12…I tore the page from the magazine and kept it all these years…I knew then as I know now that this is what my life is all about.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can easy one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
~ Emily Dickinson
