A friend of mine asked me to stop by the Boys & Girls Club this morning as she has been working on a massive mural there and she had a gift for me. First, the gift is incredible...my Word-of-the-Year (still) engraved onto a silver pendant with a small silver raindrop and pink faceted stone as a reminder to practice stillness and also a reminder to embrace my femininity. It is so beautiful and such a wonderfully thoughtful gift. And, while we visited, I somehow ended up painting for a couple of hours. Gotta love collaboration. She was contemplating a change in one part of the mural and as we began discussing it over Vietnemese noodles we came up with a simple but absolutely effective plan which I think will ties entire mural together. There is also a graffiti artist who has been involved with the project so I wanted to incorporate that feeling of 'street art' into the bottom section. I'm so pleased with this and so happy that I could contribute in such a small way.
