Hold onto your heart
Today I spent All Day, yes ALL DAY painting, collaging and getting messy. I loved it :)
Now I need to draw a little string from her finger to her heart, then add some words.......
I'm thinking "Hold onto your heart"
This thinking comes about from a couple of things - the first being that I recently saw my father let his heart go to someone in China - who wasn't who he thought she was, he was besotted by emails written by an interpreter not the girl in his 'pictures' and thus had his heart hurt :(
I think we must hold onto our hearts, and not give them away too easily, without really knowing who we are tending them to.
I want to be sure that my heart isn't hurt again, and I'm holding onto it really tight at the moment - perhaps a little too tight, as I'm not able to let the love in.
So I guess finding a balance, as we have to do with most things, is the trick.
I hope you enjoyed my painting -
Thanks also goes to Tam from Lifebook for all the different lessons, inspirations and prompts along this my creative journey for 2012.
