In the same way the physical body is connected to our emotional body, writing is connected to painting and if you can write you can also paint. The type of painting I’m referring to is expressive painting, where you let your brush become an outlet for your emotions. Writing in a journal, pouring out your feelings with a pen is one great way to let go of things. And many avenues of the arts are known to be therapeutic. But when you vacillate between painting and writing, you connect to the deep inner space that has all the answers you ask. It’s a remarkable thing.

My stomach is not doing well. I took two capfuls of Pepto Bismol and now I’m eating a piece of toast. I’m ready to work on my painting.
What have I been doing in the last four hours? Talked to London, painted, shook out the carpets, went for a walk, saw Mary (an old boss) and her daughter Rachel, ate left over roast beef sandwich from Pavilons, painted, read “Catcher in the Rye,” went back to Trader Joe’s for cilantro and limes, opened up all my windows because it was stuffy, now I’m writing in my journal listening to squealing, talking and cars driving by.
