On Sunday, March 6th, 14,000 enthusiastic supporters gathered together at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, for Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” Los Angeles County and together they raised successfully over 1.5 million dollars!!!
Steve, Katie & I were invited to help create an artistic oasis to bring more beauty to the race, and so we created an art booth that I called the “Inspiration Vortex”. Centrally located in the race, it was visual inspiration for the 14,000 participants of the race. We were there to inspire and bring more beauty to the Dodger Stadium Parking lot and I was also invited to unveil of my newest, secret, work of heart.
Later that morning, during the opening ceremonies dedicated to the Survivors of Breast Cancer, I was asked to come on stage, with our daughter Katie, to get ready to unveil my newest piece. Standing in the back section of the stage alongside the musicians, I waited for my queue to come to the front and center of the stage. This, in itself, was an amazing, emotional experience. I cannot begin to describe in words how it felt to be the Featured Artist, the one chosen to share my heart nakedly in front of 14,000 people.
Holding back my tears and trying to stay composed, I watched the front 6 rows of survivors listen to the inspirational speech being communicated to all. I was overwhelmed with emotions, remembering what it was like to be intricately connected to the journey that my best friend, Erin, whom I lost 8 years ago, went through, and realizing the strength, love & support that this piece of art could potentially give to the survivors to nourish their souls in this journey; this battle of war. I was humbled that I was the one chosen to breathe a new type of life-energy into a war type of subject.
As I stood there my eyes swelled with tiny tears of joy, honor and a swarm of emotions ran through my heart as I recalled how, within the last three months I had gotten many signs & messages one after another, that this was the time to birth my heart art painting, Believe, using its love energy to sprinkle massive amounts of joy to women worldwide. This moment was the particular moment I was being led to.
As I was called to center stage and I looked out at 14,000 people who were wondering & waiting for the mystery to unfold, I was affectionately introduced as Debbie, The Heart Artist, by the Jerri Johnson, a 10 year survivor and Chairperson for this event, noting to the crowd that this was created for the survivors.
As the brown satin material fell to the ground, Believe was revealed, causing the crowd to take a collective gasp before erupting into cheers of joy & applause.
Can you imagine what 14,000 people looking at you looking at them, looks like? Can you imagine how emotional it was to be on stage, looking out at a sea of wonderful people, all a part of such an enthusiastic team spirit of support? AMAZING!
Believe is dedicated to my Soul Sister & best friend of 35 years Erin Bray-Holt, and to the survivors as an inspiring message of unconditional love and spiritual empowerment for their journey.
Sunday, March 6th was the most humbling and honorable experience to say the least!
