  7. Kim Mailhot says:

    Knowing where to put the painful has always been the struggle for me – I so understand and love the pretty. Giving love to the painful is much more challenging but it is bringing me to a place where my two plates are balancing out a little more with each dance…
    Boogy On, Brilliant shiny one !
    ( am a Libra – this image speaks to me even more ’cause of that I think…)

    We can dance the boogie woogie blues together – and we could share that GREEN-TURQUOISE dress dear! Then it will be much more easy to deal with the painful parts… Yep, the dance and the dealing will lead us to the dream living!!

  11. Brooke says:

    Yes, that is where we find our precious hold backs. Where we can lovingly tend and nurture them, and coax them into blooming into our amazing gifts! I love this, and yes, dancing would be the result! I love how you get to the heart of it! Deep bows–Sending love!

    Rachel, your words and drawings always make me smile. My mom often uses the word boogie, and I start giggling just about every time she does that. So, that made this piece even more darling.
