Art borrows portraits from life and lets us create our own representation while pursuing a love of learning something new. Before I asked to learn to draw a lot of people wondered what I saw. Art is first a way for me to express myself without words, but also passes on bold answers, to questions about what I see. Adriana patiently has taught me how to get what I see on paper.
I probably will wonder all my life what is so different about what I see, but art accepts what our perceptions are, and embraces them as opportunity. Our world is a much brighter place with art.
When I heard Cole was flying in I seemed to look around for those promised words to occur from the moment I sleepily arrived back in Texas. When the brisk wonder of Cole would actually get here would he courageously offer his wealth of wit and humor or proudly show his strength by picking me up?
Well when he walked out of the airport baggage claim we got a good hug but the rest could be enjoyed later. Cole and I both share a glorious sized place in our stomachs for Freebirds. We stopped,ate, shared conversation and left in the rain for home.
Would we welcome summers end with counting our close caught in a rain filled weekend at the lake? Wondering this I assured myself that any time spent with Cole would bring both of us lots of laughs. We did laugh and the rain stopped.
Brothers are a gift from God woven by love and experiences.
When you work on something for pleasure powerful emotions emerge when you complete that project. When working on a task for my independence I never want the memory to fade. Half hesitant lost dependence is life as I live it under my sentiments. Mirrors remind me rising height quietly mocks my newest success carelessly. Completely capable, clearly with some challenges, I’m surrounded by love; cognitive, albeit sounding like I’m not. All making me even more determined when life might not brazenly educate me.
Living my quite surprisingly boring life can be completely satisfying when I can see perseverance, courage and love. It brings me one slightly loosely tied shoe closer to a life I dream will one day be my own.
When you ask me how does it feel to finally tie my shoes…
We were elated
We went out
When little by little my independence becomes elevated
Looping wishes no longer feel quite so complicated
