Risk. Be More

Dr. D and I discussed the possibility of me painting almost daily at set times. This would allow me to know ahead of time what to expect. I need set times for things as well as lists to feel more control over my environment and situation. Setting a specific time to paint and doing it […]

Memory Plants

Thirteen years I walked past my therapist’s Christmas Cactus and never thought to ask for a start until now.  The three spider plant starts from the surgeon are growing like weeds.

We spent a lot of time on it because it drew us into a discussion about being co-conscious and more integrated.  My emotions are more integrated and more identifiable. I showed him 4 drawings total.
