I like to write & share about art journaling as a spiritual practice, and my go-to tool for healing & life documentation. I’m a mother of grown children, and I live with an adorable furbaby in a three story walk up apartment in Canada.

I figured, since so many of you have left lovely letters in my inbox, that I'd update you on where I'm at. :) Since last we typed, I caught a virus which lead to an 'exacerbation' - basically, my asthma got uncontrollably worse due to the inflammation caused by the...
