This guy, practical, always thinking ahead, sometimes hard to convince to take a leap of faith. Married to me, chatty Kathy, running on faith, weird & whimsical, always believing everything will fall into place. Two opposites traversing life together for over thirty years. I guess we must compliment each other.
I've been graced with a space that has served many purposes over the years. What once was a garage became a private preschool/DayCare "Kaleidascope", opened into a mini apt. for kiddo and wife transitioning from military to civilian life, evolved into a private yoga studio and then surprisingly and sadly became a catch all. So many stories there. Then I was blessed with the Woman Unleashed month long workshop. I watched, I listened, I wrote, I painted and I REMEMBERED . These past several weeks have been filled with decluttering, reclaiming, unleashing an energy that is surprising in its tenacity, strength, reunion and creative power. My pact with myself was that I could only journal during this period. I couldn't play with my art until I finished. It has been astonishing. Imperfectly perfect. I am blessed.
I am trying to let go of judgement and control and just be grateful for what I have. Overcome that life long impulse to run away.
I know my family doesn't believe as I believe and I am okay with that as long as they give a little respect towards my views, be a little forgiving of my shortcomings and every once in a while be surprised and impressed with who I am.
I'm Kim, I am who I am. Photography, writing, mixed-media art, gardening and travel, wit and wonder all serve in making me uniquely me.
