“I tell you this
to break your heart,
by which I mean only
that it break open and never close again
to the rest of the world.”-Mary Oliver
You are a witness to what’s happening right now. At the height of 2020, I wrote this to myself:
I think the me five years from now would look back and tell me in this moment:
You’re an overwhelmed nurse practitioner working during a pandemic that is disrupting life as we know it.
I’m telling you, in five years
You’re going to need all these stories you are a witness to. Write about what’s happening, especially the heartbreaking things. Paint the things you can’t help but paint: all the heartbreak you can’t find the words for.
These stories- your paintings, may just become your most prized treasures.
You will leave your story behind when it’s your time to go.
And you can be proud:
You had the courage to remember all of it and you were brave enough to share it.
Art connects and you have no idea who you might inspire to do whatever makes them come alive.
Keep doing your work.
And most importantly,
“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.” -H Murakami
