Dream Drawing: Going Within

Dream Drawing December 2016, my wish/ vision for this week: GOING WITHIN.  

It´s the last week of the year 2016 and with that it´s time for closing what was, and opening up for the new to come: new year, new dreams, new opportunities and new thoughts. I can wish whatever I want and it feels... liberating. 

I have my word for the next year clear, the overall magic word to guide every action and step I´ll take. Do you have yours? I will share mine, of course, but not now. Now it´s time for closure, looking back, saving what´s worth saving and closing, saying good bye to what we don´t need, want anymore. Now we go deep within.

Have a lovely week. Take care of yourself.

Peace, 

Maria. 

 

Dream Drawing: Grace.

Grace is grown from earthly wounds and blisters. It is a choice and a feeling that come with warmth and acceptance of life's challenges and askew paths (from the blog, June 2016)

This week I wish for Grace. Grace, as in ease and balance even though a storm is riding my inside. This is due to challenges that are shaking my path, the path I know I'm meant to walk and worked hard to stay on even when overgrown by abhorrent weeds.

This week - the adorable feeling of Grace can help me hold my head high, my body relaxed, and trust the knowing that I have from...  Nothing. 

I wish you all a graceful, rememberable week 🌹

Peace. 

Maria

Light.

Day 50. My Dream Drawing, my wish/ vision for the week: light.

Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light (Nike Rowe).

Through what I do I try to spread some light around me. My mission is simple - to lay a ground for other people to "dance on", whether as a Drummer, Artist or Mentor.

I could never do that if I hadn't been through real darkness, felt deep, black pain under my own skin; I was close to die from Anorexia as a teenager, I've been harshly (loudly and silently) criticized and questioned for both my choice of path in Life and for being who I am; being, crying, laughing, dreaming too much. And, I've felt deeply "neglected" many times by teachers et al. due to my apparent look of confidence. Going through this doesn't mean that I am tougher than anyone else. On the contrary. I still fall. Still struggle. I've just taken a choice to be bold enough to carry my own, fragile sensitivity on a silver tray in front of me and serve it, transparently.

Let's spread some light this week! 🌟

Maria.

I know.

I know. Everything and nothing at all.  

I know. That I'm loved but can loose that love anytime. 

I know. That I dare to stand out and shine but sometimes back off due to fear.

I walk my path and get lost sometimes. I know. It's a price I happily pay.

I know that I'm strong and that I'm weak. Beautiful and ugly. Black and white.

I know. 

I know.  Ink & aquarelle on cotton paper.
