Morning Katie, I certainly feel connected to you. Don't know why. I think it is that I do understand all that you say and feel. Today you said something that I had to write in my little inspiration journal that I keep right here. A Katie quote for the future, ..."being in the uncomfortable place of between, makes me feel a bit afraid and more." I love the "...place of between..." part.

Katie... Thank you for opening up like this... usually I am quite unwilling during those "dips" to share what's going on with anyone... I know what you mean about the moods taking you by surprise... the thing about depression is you can "tell" yourself it will pass, but your heart doesn't believe it. The hopelessness is crushing.
You're right to cling to your family and your art. Be better soon. xxoo Carla

Reaching out to you with love. Your willingness to speak of those feelings helps others. You are a treasure.

The Dali Lama is a very intelligent man. His advice is always meant to be used to cultivate more compassion, for ourselves and for others. All adventurers of art and spirit can identify with what you are feeling. You're not alone but you're beautifull in your own unique journey.

Violet's going to be 2 already? How'd that happen so fast?? You may not feel it right now, but you have a lot of strength & cuorage to share a part of yourself that not everyone would be willing to do, another thing that I admire about you. We've spoken before about us both living in rural areas, it can be lonely sometimes. But you're right about having the internet, there are so many people I never would've "met" without it. And the funny part is, some of those people have turned out to be local but we may never have met otherwise. Just hang on, good things are coming your way!

We are all connected to one another. I try to remember that as I go through my life. Everything that I do has a connection to someone else, or to our earth and our universe. Be kind to yourself in every way that you can and soon you will be on the other side of the dip -- not looking back, but looking forward.

Thanks for being so open and sharing Katie, we're all here to back you up. If you've read any of Deepak Shopra's books, he states that when you look through the microscope and keep looking and looking, we're all part of one atom, what you feel we all feel, together we help each other and can all pull through. Distance is no object.

Hugs

I am isolated in my own way too and I can understand how this can exacerbate a low mood. Your need to reach out and be understood is only natural. I do know that blogging helps me too and that supportive comments go a long way to picking me up when I'm down. Keep focussing on the positive, and as you say yourself, it will pass.

dear katie...

I have a piece of art that is a companion to my Poetry Thursday prose.

I LOVE the quote I used in the artwork

"without the great journey to seek what is not known we cannot be fulfilled"

you.. sweet friend are traveling the road of this great journey... facing your fears... challenging the unknown.

Katie, I like knowing that the gold paint you gave me is the final layer on the wonderful collage I made in Lynne's class... and you used some of my paint and music sheets in your collage. Our art connects us in a different dimension, I think of you often. Hugs, Kathy

Just another reason to admire you. The fact that you accept the dips, and keep reaching, even when you are in the hole, is heroic.

The girls are beautiful. Little Violet is a shining star. You have done great things in this little blue world.

I didn't go to ArtFest but everyone seems to be depressed after leaving such a supportive environment. Your family is Beautiful! And look at your artwork - it is so uplifting! The colors are cheerful, everyone is flying up - so Positive. Thank you for your wonderful posts.
