After the last blog entry, I feel like I need to write something light. Something easy to carry. I have read Marionette, my last post, a few times. It still seems a little, jumbled. I could feel the anger creeping in the more I wrote, I felt like I could not quite get my point across. Which is always the problem when I attempt to talk or write about those days. It is very frustrating.

Then it suddenly occurred to me, that I want everyone to be as dismayed and hurt, and broken as I was during those years. When I talk about it, I want to hear GASPS! and GROANS, the shaking of the head and a soft touch of the hand “How did you ever survive that?” and it is not because, I want to appear the victim. The poor me, the sad doll tossed into the free box at a garage sale. I just want to know, by those subtle acts of understanding. I am not crazy. It did happen, and I survived. Period.

What was I writing about at first? Something light, something easy to carry?

*after 5 minutes of staring at my blog, arms folded*

Who am I kidding?  My blog is titled  ‘.into my deep’  πŸ™‚

Of course, that is not really all of who I am. I do have to come up for air.  How boring, to be hanging out in the Emo depths, slouched artistically against the coral.  Swaying dark hair, cutting across a gray expression. Boring.

 Oh darling, an Artist is never boring. *smirks*

My cousins daughter, after I said she reminded me of, Fall. Quipped back to me “and you remind me of, Spring” I smiled. Yes, within my Winter, there is an everlasting Spring.

A smile.

A kind word.

A soft push of encouragement.

And yes, a shimmering ocean of dark humor.

I am the Evergreen, in the landscape of white.

Dum Vivo Spero, our families Latin motto. Which roughly means, ‘While I breathe, I hope.’    And fellow artist, I do declare, I am still breathing.

  1. Beautiful. Yes, I found too that when, no, not when but IF I talk about these days, I want that reaction to know it was real and I was able to make it out. But, I barely do talk about it all, mostly cause I feel I still have 2 more kids to raise. Two more I need to be strong for. And the only one I ever opened up to about it, after it happened and for the only time really, is my now better half. Funny how that goes ….

    1. Thank you for the feedback Silke πŸ™‚ I always love and appreciate what you have to say. πŸ™‚ It is good to talk about, and share. Even when difficult to do so. I have 2 children from that marriage so I completely understand!


      1. Yes. Sometimes I been thinking of kind of touching on it when writing and I think that, at some point, I might but for now it’s still taking a backseat without having to think about it too much, or getting to angry when thinking about it πŸ™‚ It will all happen in time. My kids, all three, turned out amazing through and despite all of it!!!
