For Kimbo…

(art journal piece from February 2008)

"The Heart Of Life"
I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears
And listen
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good
You know, it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then, circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it's good

- John Mayer

 

February is my SAD month, big time.

Working on keeping SAD Kimbo as well as possible.

Going to a place of gratitude helps, even if the gratitude isn’t as rich as it is on a good day.

Today, I am grateful that I found the strength to be vertical, showered and reaching out…

Oh, and for my friends, family and especially my husband, who love this icky Me anyway.

Love will get me through…

Big Love, Beautiful Ones.

I hope a sunbeam comes and lands on your shoulder soon Kim. Feeling the sadness means you are alive and human... Love to you xx

SAD is not fun. And our lovely weather of late has not helped focus toward the joys of the return of Spring. Shower yourself with those hearts and I now you are surrounded by love. Let it hug you now. xox corrine

Sending you many many hugs and much love, friend! You are just so awesome, and please know that you are much loved. I have some "Kimbo" stuff hanging in my art room and I think of you so often. And, I always smile when I do!
