Daydreams Diary: I’ve Been Waiting…

It’s been a while since I sat down to catch up with you.

There’s a reason for that.

In the recent words of someone I’ve always admired, actress Uma Thurman,

 

“I’ve been waiting to feel less angry.”

 

I’ve got a flurry of these Daydreams Diaries coming up this season perhaps making up for it.

With all of the events going on in the world, I felt the sudden urge to re-post my own #MeToo story,

The Girl That Didn’t Cry Wolf

 

 

Shared exclusively a few years ago at Stories That Must Not Die.

I think it’s important to highlight this happens to very young girls too. & We need to protect and educate our children.


Love Always,
Daydreams

Sleepy Sundays: Golden

Golden

More than once here on CardCastles I’ve mentioned I believe heavily in keeping certain traditions alive in both the family and between friends. Although at times we can sometimes break tradition too—for our own reasons; however it may suit us.

There’s a lot of scars that haunt me deep inside, so much so that a friend and I used to joke over the phone “I’m fine!” becomes our theme song when we’re really—well, not.

This reminded me of a conversation a relative and I once had about strong women. We were cleaning the home of a very rich lady when it happened. She mentioned how we have the ability to turn not so much into much more and then some. The rich lady later became my second grade art teacher. She taught me up to 5th grade. Many of the techniques I still use in my work today, I learned from her.

This piece was inspired by these two strong women.

Who is an inspiring lady in your life?

Have a relaxing Sunday!
