I’ve had a lot of monster-making feeling lately – which works out because I have to really feel a monster to make one. Paint one. Illustrate its story.
I start out writing. It’s only note-taking, really, but it has to be done. I have to have the conversation with myself. The mind needs to separate stories, weed away indignation, frustration, anger and find acceptance and humor and happiness in being human. I think I’m really aiming at forgiveness – even if it’s forgiveness for my own ridiculous expectations or behavior.
Forgiveness – is an important, very personal theme of mine. It comes fairly easily to me, but it’s far from simple.
Right now, that’s all I have to say.
