Sue asked me to write this post for her dear blog friend. I did not 'know' Kelly but have spent the evening at her blog...'getting to know her'. For this is something I have found over and over again...that although we are separated by miles and and sometimes continents, lives that may never connect in real life, there is a strong and undeniable connection that can be made with this medium.
I admire this artist, this soulful woman who is in need of divine love, thoughts and prayers...
as we gather strength from each other, for each other...holding hands to send support and light
a candle lit alone...for each light multiplies with blinding and powerful force
looking back over the past year...so much has happened and I treasure this blog as a way to look back, reflect and remind myself of the good, the fortunate and wonderful things that have come my way as well as the devastating.
the flood that my community and those nearby are still trying to recover from is one that I am reminded of nearly every day. Peoples lives and homes, roads and river beds...the greenway that was so intrictly woven into our daily lives, will take years to restore.
I visited the nearby town of Lyons the other day and was struck by the level of devistation, familiar places that are unrecognizable...but people both near and far are rallying, rebuilding and helping their neighbors, although there is still much to do.
There are bright spots of hope around every corner...stories of love and support and huge hearts
As the holidays wrap up and a new year is right on the horizon
I have to focus on the creative spirit that I find sprouting all around...because art saves
