amulet of hope
the studio declutter/re-org is complete, and it goes without saying i'm thrilled to be at the finish line and to have 200 extra square feet. i'll write more about it at some point but at the moment i'm consumed with thoughts of renee, who has been documenting her struggle with cancer over the past few years on her blog circling my head. sadly she is not doing well. her daughter angelique has been posting updates on her behalf. i find myself there often, combing her words for strength, reading between the lines for sparks of hope, absorbing the comments people have left with love for renee and her family.
there are many who have followed renee's journey for much longer than i have, people who have become a fierce squad of support to her, people who are almost like kin to her. ces, bella and manon have painted and drawn beautiful pieces in honor of her. i've written this piece as a small gesture of comfort to renee's friends, to her family, to renee herself, to anyone beset by injustice or physical suffering or difficult circumstances. an amulet of strength, hope and love to you.
