Apparently it snuck up on me over the last few years, so quietly did it settle in my soul that I never saw it coming. All I knew was I felt as if I had fallen in a deep hole and I really didn't care. I felt myself withdraw from my life, my art, my family ...everything that was important to me.
I just didn't care.
Ah, it makes so much sense now.
When I finally realized I needed help with my symptoms, went to a Dr. (not for depression) but she's the one that figured it out. Hallelujah! Today I am out of that hole, and finally feeling myself coming alive again. Tried the meds.. no thanks! I've opted for the natural way, sunshine and fresh air instead, camera in hand. So if you wonder why so much photography, well.. because it's what I need at the moment. Getting out makes me feel alive, happy and refreshed.
There is an oil painting on my easel, along with a small piece I'm reworking for the CPSA Explore This! Online Exhibition. I will share as soon as I can. I would love to do some serious plein air this winter, so
we will see, keep your fingers crossed!

Until next time, Enjoy!
