My Latest Housing Search is Over at Last!

Celebrate! Celebrate! Dance to the Music!!

I am incredibly happy about having found my own place to live yesterday!! This finally comes after two years of transition from small town living to try life in the nearest big city and on some significant fronts, failing badly in the effort!

Funny how sometimes you can leave home seeking fame and fortune in the wider world, only to return to find it was all here the whole time! I have learned a lot and I look forward to just exhaling for awhile. Then, gently putting into action what I am learning still. I know this process of re-defining my life isn't over. Just for now, it is in some revision of better planning as well as greater internal clarity, for as long as that takes!

Below are a couple of "before" pics of the inside of my new abode!

My OWN place in which to grow, to soak in what internally has been germinating as well as on hold, for a very long time. My own place from which to learn how to bring my inner purpose into clarity with greater effectiveness out in the world!! I'm 'cited with anticipation and wisdom!!

Professionalism Mirrored Back


I am so-o-o very pleased, proud, and very excited to write and share with you all my newest, professional affiliation with a collaborative project debuting during Women's History month in Washington DC, this month!

If you click on the link "gallery," on their website you can find one of my paintings at the bottom of that page. If you scroll through the menu bar to the side of the page, click on "WAWH Biographies" and again scroll to the bottom of the page to find my very simple bio statement.

I cannot begin to tell you what this affiliation means to me!! Yet, I will start by saying that it represents my first alliance after sixteen to twenty-one years of working in isolation on the healing of my FOO needed in me; developing the creative process in tandem every step of the way. (The time difference represents my parenting and painting paths.)
A healing process that leads to one’s own ability to express a new voice of autonomous value; a voice that no one can ever take away again; a voice, an inner identity to consciously choose to pass on. A creatively intelligent voice in solidity and clarity of personal courage; becoming the embodiment of work one empowers oneself to bring into this world in order to share for the benefit for everyone attracted specifically to what I do in art, somatic psychology and alternative nutrition, for their own benefit; raising my daughter as first beneficiary. At this brief moment of transition, I consider my daughter is this fleeting vitality merging into her own sense of self.

It is my wish to open this new door to Woman Artists/ Women Healing with you, as I begin this part of my journey and professional life, in order to share what my whole life has been about with greater clarity: to come to an inner place in this world where I belong as I am_ an artist, a woman, a daughter healing family inheritance that took hold in me in the womb; an inheritance of abuse and abandonment in their universality that have always deserved an appropriate liberation process within everyone who seeks it for their own unique healing processes.

I cannot begin to put into words right now, the feelings I am still skyin' over, when I read the first email response to my contact with the Women Artists/ Women Healing facilitators! I suddenly felt my professional self mirrored back to me in very powerful feelings that continue to buoy me; my gratitude for this experience of peer recognition is boundless.

Clear Voices of Women Artists/Women Healer-Allies, at Long Last

Women Artists/Women Healing: Multicultural Artistic Narratives of Trauma and Survival is a five-part narrative series featuring literary readings, performances, exhibitions and facilitated discussions.

Gathering women artists, healers, veterans, and survivors from across cultures and disciplines, the series showcases the resiliency and expression of the human spirit, seen through the lens of female artists and speakers.

Join us every Tuesday evening in March from 6-9pm at CentroNía in Washington, D.C. as we explore the connective tissue of humanistic themes that entwines us all.

Interact with the artists, performers and panelists to learn how lives are transformed through artistic, creative and personal expressions. Listen to voices of survival, be it the ravages of war and strife, or crime, poverty, and oppression and find out how faith, healing and empathy are entry points for promoting justice and healing from within and beyond one’s own personal experience.

In celebration of Women’s History Month
, each program begins at 6pm with a light reception, art exhibit and performance, followed by a facilitated panel discussion at 6:45pm. Audience interaction is encouraged.

Women Artists/Women Healing is produced by Elizabeth Bruce, author of ‘And Silence Left the Place,’ stage actor, playwright of ‘Sheila’s Iron,’ and educator. The series is associate produced by Alivia Tagliaferri, author and documentary film-maker of Ironcutter Media, and Timothea Howard, political activist, visual artist and program manager of CentroNía’s Community Schools Program.

Women Artists/Women Healing is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, and hosted by CentroNía (1420 Columbia Road, NW, Washington, DC 20009). The series is also funded in part by the Readings & Workshops Program of Poets & Writers, Inc.
