I don't usually do this...but I directed folks (you, if you are reading this, hello) to my blog to view today's piece. The reason- I had some things to say about it, might be a little long winded, at least for social media platforms...so...yeah.
This morning when I left my friend Jessie's I was engulfed in a mini-swarm of butterflies. They were all around, their black, white and yellow wings flickering in the morning light- all around me. And I had a moment of clarity and calm.
Almost nineteen years ago, when my best friend Amy died I remember asking for some kind of sign. Some indication that she was still with me, out there, somewhere. Today, when I was in the middle of those butterflies, I felt it. I received my sign.
I had a moment of clarity when I realized that the people I love, my family and friends and the love that I give and receive from others...that is where my friend lives. Amy is with me. That is where Lucy, my mother in law, lives on. Lucy is with me.
And I felt like everything around me was really...clear. And beautiful. And I felt my heart swell with love and peace.
So I made my piece today to reflect my experience today. In the middle of beauty, feeling alive, feeling LOVE.
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
