a spectacular still early morning harbour / hydrangea / seed heads along the crescent beach / virginia creeper berries / itty bitty Betty / Virgil & the geraniums / sunrise clouds / the beautiful fall colour of virginia creeper / my Missy Dee XOXO / low tide on the crescent beach / asters in the back garden / antique piggy bank / mo' Betty / the salt mine wharf 

Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.

It's been a busy week here at the TTD I've almost completed 10 new artworks, 10 of 18 for this new wonderful top secret project (soon to be revealed). I have an end of the monthish deadline, realistically it will likely be more like mid November before the entire project is put to bed. I've been working so fast & so furiously at times, creating new collage pieces, that I can't, I don't have time to critique them - which is probably a really good thing as objectiveness toward my own work is near impossible when I'm in the thick of it.

While I work I listen to TV shows, TED talks, Hay House radio shows, audio books and I've been doing plenty of thinking. Thinking a lot about vulnerability, authenticity and their evil nemesis shame. I've been carrying around some big shame for as long as I can remember. I'm trying to let go of it.

I realize saying trying to let go is kind of the opposite of actually letting go, I don't think your supposed to try and let go. You just let go. Let go. Let go. Ahhhhhhhhhh ...

Let go


  1. oh my, that Miss Betty is adorable.

    Glad to hear the new project is going so well, looking forward to the reveal.

  2. Are you hearing Yoda's advice to Luke in your head ? "There is no TRY, only DO". Personally, I think Yoda was a bit full of himself.

  3. Glorious photos dear Susan, Miss Betty is looking very beautiful, so too Virgil and Missy D.
    Hugs and kisses to all!
