Reaching For

There are times I don't really know for what I am reaching. To be a better artist? To be a better friend? To be a better wife? I know that I long to be new, to be whole, to be healed. That is a little of what my art is about. I have healed through my art. It has been my voice when I couldn't reach down inside to speak. I reach to be seen and to be heard and to know. There is a lot to know and I know so little. Be true to myself and to hear my self, to let my voice come forth. That is the reaching, that is the healing.
