The Ride of Life

Life is really a rollercoaster. You travel along doing your thing, planning and grinding up the hills working toward goals. Just when you hit the top the bottom drops out and you are swept up in what is happening right this minute. I am feeling a bit like that right now. I have had a health "glitch"  and am holding on and working to get things back to normal again.

The thing that has been the most remarkable for me, is the amazing nature and nurture of the TRIBE - all those folks you interact with day-to-day that rally around in a crisis and wrap you in their arms. Some folks you know really well and some who have that gift of empathy and are not afraid to open their arms to you, even if you are not close. I have found that most creative people are very in touch with their feelings and the feelings of others. I can only guess it is in our ability to express ourselves, no matter what medium we use, that makes it easier for us to spread the joy around.  I extremely grateful for this and for the ability to use my creativity as a safe place to go where all doubts and worry are banned.  Be proud that you are part of the TRIBE. 

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.
