The last day of May 2013. A month filled with sadness but surprises. My DH continues to improve from his stroke in mid-April and it’s surprising how quickly he is recovering some of his abilities but the sadness for me is that he may never be the vibrant man I’ve lived with the last 42 years. But the saying “what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger” is true. He has learned to let go and let others do for him. In the meantime I’ve finally made peace with my artistic direction and look forward to sharing my art, techniques and tips in this ‘new’ blog.
