You must love your tears and your way, when you dance...

I have been dancing, again.  Maybe not well, but, for me.  When I dance, I seem to remember what true love is.  True love lifts you, makes you feel like you are leaping with joy on a Spring day in the garden and all feels warm and comforting.  I give that to myself as I stand doing my barre work.  I am true love.

Here I Am...

"Here I am"
by
Amy Sperry Faldet
I am here.
I never left....
Here I am.
Found.
I have never really known.
All the while,
knowing all along...
Here I am.
I have an announcement... I know this is my favorite painting I have ever done. Ever.
I feel it is finally me. Finally, me, remembering me. Finding me. Here I am. I am here.

"To free ourselves from the expectations of others..."

...To give back to ourselves... there lies the great singular power of self-respect."~Didion
These paintings are mine... They are the work of a fabulous, sweet, powerful, kind, passionate, artist and human... They are not and could not be created by anyone less.
Every brush stroke was an act of courage...
Each moment was one of breath and hope...
I had to open my heart...
I have to allow myself to love the idea of love.
 
I had to and still have to see that I am a moonchild that loves the dark and the stars...
 
I must believe in the fairytale that I am.

Stargazer... Queen of Her Own light...

Stargazer queen...
"This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in a forest and be part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy." ~Schutz
Do you know the beauty of looking at the stars?  The way they are pin point diamonds in the dark velvet?  The sweet, glorious, smell of Spring and renewal envelopes my senses when I realize something. 
"Once you feel like you are avoided by someone, never disturb them again." ~Unknown author
The dark gaps that some create between your points of light make you realize how you shine.  Let them go.  Say good-bye.  Enjoy being a star in the dark.  For once you do, you recognize all the others who are just as glowing and giving and bright. 
Light gives of itself freely.

This time,
 I am free to say
and
appreciate
good-bye.
Love
that
light.

"Airships in Her Eyes" by Christopher Ryan

An Orphan light,
in sleight of glance,...
reveals the gears
of a clockwork heart

All geologic color fades,
replaced with casts
of industrial wash
In the streamline of
"A new start"
We are now the automaton dolls
Each one the product
of a mechanical romance
Between barons of iron
And human apart.

"I Will" by Amy Sperry Faldet

One day, I will find the right words, and they will be simple." ~Jack Kerouac
I will.
I see the blossoms of faery drift across my vision.
I will.
Stories in the blue are adrift in the perfect breeze of inspiration....
I will.
I will.
I will unfold.

Where two reflect, together... a love letter.

It is a rare thing when you meet someone that brings out the best in you.  It is like a love letter from the Universe, saying, "You are here on this Earth to carry the story on.  You are here on this Earth to delight in the senses so that others may never forget that they are too." 
I am so glad in the people I have met.

Latter Day Shadows by Christopher Ryan
My dearest, we are but latter-day shadows in a renaissance fog. Lost in the vapors of time, our marrow is like a cloud that drifts backward into the ages. For, my darling one, this love is harbored in a heart much older than the bodies in which ours presently beat.
