HIDDEN LIGHT: I started this painting right before Chanukah. I did a bit here and there and then left it sitting on the easel for me to keep adding a stroke when ever I saw my next move. I came back to it Thursday night to finish it up. It was the only thing I wanted to do. Thursday afternoon I got into a minor car accident. Although, it could have been major - I was inches away from death happening. We’re all ok BH, but I’m so shaken up. As I was painting, I was processing my thoughts - and what I’ve come to realize, is that HaShem is watching over me and He’s watching over you too. There was so much good that was there - the lady I was bumped was so nice. An African American woman. Sweet nice lady. The police man was kind as well. A neighbor came out of her house and offered to watch my baby so that I didn’t have to hold him in the cold. My step father came and took the bigger boys. In a moment of chaos, I felt safe. I really believe that we create our own safe havens and it has to come from inside of ourselves. We project that energy into our lives. Yes, I was moments away from really scary things & it was a personal wake up call to me, I’m not sure for what - I’m still processing, but it was mirroring to me what is happening on a macro level - we are being yelled to - wake up! We don’t need to go on Jewish news groups to be immersed in chaos all day long. That instills insecurity In is from within! That’s the worst thing! We don’t need to harp and watch and read...we need to think and take personal action to be better. Time to Wake up....
