It was hard to begin creating, but the words kept flooding in my head. So little by little, I was able to create.
I did not want to paint my hand (I still have a problem with getting my hands dirty). So I traced my hand on paper and put my I Can’ts there. That was very significant for me, because the I Can’ts could not touch me.
Then I was able to paint my hand and started placing squares of tissue with the positive words of what I CAN do. Again this was significant, because I only want the positive stuff within me. After that, I started to relax and enjoy the rest of the creation process.

2014, finding balance in myself. I know I CAN now!
I have seen so many I CAN's and they are all incredible and so creative. They are testaments to the things we are able to do as human beings. The good things within us.
When I was asked to write about my I CAN, there was so much going on with me. I could not pinpoint what I really wanted to accomplish. I know BALANCE was the big word.
I am glad to say it finally came to me, balance. As a Gemini, the world is my oyster. In true Gemini form, I want it all. And I can have it all, if I am willing to put in the time and effort. At least that is my bright side speaking.
The dark side is afraid, still, even though so much time has passed. Of course, my bright side never lets on; it is always saying, just do it, just have fun. Live for today and on and on. And the little bit of dark that is left is losing its power, but every now and then, it lets me know, hey I am still here, you still have things you need to take care of…
And that is what I am grateful for. I know I CAN take care of things because I have tools. Art is a tool for me that works all the time. It has never failed me. Art to me is putting words and color on paper, drawing a single line, and letting it go. It allows me to deal with my dark, painful, and sad side. Thru art I tell myself I am ok. I know, I can no longer allow anyone to hurt me, including myself.
I CAN take care of me, and my Gemini twins are one, a happy balanced one of me. And when things get a little out of whack I have art to help me deal. I am strong and so it is.
