The Lingering Silence

I sit here and stare into white and wonder what words to fill this empty expanse with. 

This has been going on most of the summer and, with a couple exceptions, this internet space has remained empty.

Even writing this feelings limping, awkward.

Where have the words fled to?  I'm not sure, and I don't know how to coax them back.

So, in the silence, I have been painting again (these).  I have been meditating.  I have been reading.  I have been being a mama.  I have been sleeping.  The different faces of my creativity.  One is not more or less valuable than another.

I keep reminding myself of this, over and over.

* * *

I have no conclusion.  

No "I was quiet but now I'm back so YAY!" resolution.

Just the silence and the unknowing.

So I remain here, without judgement.

I made this for you, in the silence.  In silence.  For now, the silence will have to be enough:


  1. Thanks for this. I have been quiet, too. It's good to know others are making secret things.

    And I've just watched that video through twice. You are an actual genius.
    Do you ever sell the originals of your art or just prints? What material do you use? X

  2. It is enough. You are enough. You are amazing. May you find peace in the silence and the unknowing. I see your brave heart as you walk through this. This is important work. xo
