Live Slowly

God help us to live slowly:
To move simply:
To look softly:
To allow emptiness:
To let the heart create for us.

wanted to recopy my comment left on that post here so i had my anxiety of the process documented :)

thank you for this kel - i <3 outsider art for that very reason, it connects with me deeply - no training, just a full expression of the life lived, usually through pain of mental illness or incarceration and a complete abandonment to the process without the arbiters of right and wrong.

as i wait to hear if we cleared this next hurdle i am feeling a bit of the "am i good enough" vibe in myself right now. i know if we are rejected it will probably be for scale and size instead of vision and talent - but i'm still so filled with anxiety.
