Midwinter Blues

I have been struggling with my emotions the past few days. I have cried uncontrollably at times, put on a smile in public and soldiered on. I have been stressed about changes and getting things done. I have always been a listener and people often share with me things they do no share with others however I struggle to find those who will listen to me when I need it. I find it difficult to trust and still struggle at times with Mike and knowing that I can trust him completely. It is a new experience for me. I had not really realized I lack trust in others until I met Mike. Tonight I had an upsetting exchange with someone that shook me to my core. I found myself writing about my exchange and also drawing a little. I understand why Norman Rockwell painted life as he wished it could be. Both his work and Van Gogh’s speak to me on levels that I embrace and feel in my soul. I share these photos as a reflection on history and nature which are near and dear to me.

    Dear Becca…Perhaps some seasonal affective disorder…I know that I suffer with it (among other things!)…I do think that our relationships teach us much about ourselves, and even over long periods of time, I am still learning more about my issues. Lent started today, and no matter a person’s faith…winter is the time before spring sprouts with new life, and hopefully it will for us as well! Hang in there and I love your blooming Christmas Cactus. I forgot how much I love those plants! Thanks for your blog…I do relate!!

Rising Over the Smoke

Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man 
as different from yourselves.... 
See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, 
for love and unity come hard 
 when ye fix your gaze on otherness. ~Baha'i
