The creative prompt of the week at InspireMeThursday is "Healing". Melanie included some "Healing" quotes and the first one that struck me was this one from Tori Amos - "Healing takes courage. We all have courage even if we have to dig a little to find it."
I created this page in my art journal, portraying my own "Big Dig", looking for courage to heal myself. Some people in my life think I am courageous, many of them tell me I am strong, stronger that I think I am. Some days, I feel like I am in that hole, digging away, looking for the courage to change, to rise up, to heal. Others, I am the "Tiny Bird with a Big Song" on the top of the world, singing my song with my whole heart. I think that is the thing aboout healing...it happens a little bit at a time, not always as quickly as we wish it would. And it does take courage...ah well, maybe in the next shovel full...
