Today at my art therapy group I began to talk about drawing the things that I love; instead of always things related to the abuse. The image above is a drawing I started working on today.
The poem on The Writer's Almanac for today is lovely: I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, by William Wordsworth.
Here is a blog that I follow which is very well written and full of great poems, quotes and wonderful links. I am posting the link to it here today because of this courageous and insightful post she wrote a couple of days ago.
Today I realized I started this blog four years ago on April 22, 2007. The Race to Stop the Silence is next Saturday, April 23, 2011. It will be my first time running it. I am both nervous and excited. I will be wearing one of the t-shirts I designed when I run it and so will my friends who will be there with me. You can help raise awareness about the epidemic of child sexual abuse by wearing one of the shirts too. The t-shirt can be purchased HERE. (CafePress charges $17.99 for the shirt. There is no markup on it. The image is printed on both the front and back.)
