Let Go of Fear

My last post entitled Fear generated a fairly lively dialogue, which I thoroughly enjoyed even though, in the end, there was no resolution. Five people favored the juxtaposition of heart and mind while five other readers preferred art and mind. One person remained neutral leaving me with the final decision, therefore, here goes the final version:

fear of failure
paralyses art and mind
o, to be whole again

However, there comes a time when one must let go of fear, and I though I would let one of my friends, Carrie Dayshare her feelings with us on this matter.

The best I can say right now is that I am still working at it.Writing remains a pain, but fortunately, teaching ikebana keeps me in the loop. Both Brenda and I are enjoying our classes, and to see what we are up to these, just visit us at the EJCA Ikebana Club where you will see the work of our students posted after every lesson. Just as I am committed to Harmonia, our church choir at WestwoodI also enjoy creating flower arrangements for our Sunday services such as the one posted at the top of this page, and the two found below. I hope you can enjoy them as well.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Thanks for sharing your friend Carrie Day. Her jazz is fabulous as well as her pop. And as ever, your flower arrangements are stunning. Fear may be a limitation in some circumstances, but our limitations can give us freedoms as well.

  2. It is always a great pleasure to hear from you. You are obviously a fan of music and, by reading your comments, I have a feeling that you are quite attune to contemporary music, and no doubt, to classical music as well. Thanks for sharing your feeling so generously.
