Deep, Visceral Existence
I forgot that there is a place within me that SCREAMS for the kind of emotion that I have been trying to avoid, to stifle, and to smother -- that today's fearful world at large is trying to keep at bay. I grew so tired of weeping that I forgot the release of deep, wracking, soul-wrenching sobs. I buried my desire for inspiration so far below a drive for a paycheck that I forgot how art is, in itself, a sustenance. I have hungered for fulfillment, without realizing that it is within my hands; it is locked within the strokes that make the letters that form the words and that group into sentences that can either form my prison or my palace.

"Oftentimes in the past, I have felt what I call divine timing. I know when it’s time to wait for something, and when it’s time to push forward. My sense of divine timing has not been clear lately. Instead, I wonder if I am floating in a sea of apathy because it is a safer place to be than striking out across the ocean with clear, clean strokes – not knowing where I’m going necessarily, but at least moving forward."

Feeling At Home Away From Home
"I am much different than the last time I was abroad. I am calmer, and more curious. I hide less behind my sunglasses. I speak to people more, and I feel welcome here."

Listening to My Inner Voice
"That small voice helped me make these changes, even when they felt awful, like a betrayal. The voice has helped me find myself in the midst of a cacophony of expectations, both real and imagined from others. When I listen to that voice, I get better. And more than anything, that voice has told me that it’s ok to take my time to get better."

A Welling Rage
When I lived in Spain, I felt I had more in common with the Muslim Moroccan students than Spaniards, many of whom made fun of me because I didn’t speak the language well and couldn’t communicate my needs, my emotions, or the fact that I was a real, three-dimensional human being."
