Is covid-19 a REVELATION or a trap? A blessing or a curse? Some view it as a negative, some as a positive. Either way you look at it life, living is an evolving journey of wins and losses. Who would ever think that the entire WORLD would be on a TIMEOUT? Like a parent correcting a child, Covid-19 has been the longest timeout ever in history!
Traditionally a “TIMEOUT” is given to a child when they do something wrong, or to ball player has violating some rule in a game. The parent or manager giving the timeout is always in hope that some REVELATION will occur, that the person in violation of some law, rule, or policy will have an epiphany.
It took some almost a year to settle into our new lifestyle, to overcome the daily threat of the unseen monster “Covid-19”, lurking in the background of our daily life. The constant threat to our survival gave way to cleaning out our closets, reorganizing messy cabinets, repainting our house, decorating our offices for zoom calls, reorganizing the areas of life that got left behind in our BUSY lifestyles. And working out how to survive when one has lost their job, cannot open their restaurant, can’t go to work, can’t go to school, can’t go to an art show or more importantly loses their loved one to a monster that has changed the way we live life & appreciate life forever.
As spiritual person and creative artist that paints about love & life and naturally dedicated to bringing about the brighter side to all things, somehow, I have managed to view life as a revelation of truths and a chance to grow. Now maybe at first when tragedy strikes, I feel a bit thrown under the bus, like my life is in a washing machine cycle of twirling confusion and then my power shines through and a natural tendency to tackle it head on.
Maybe it is the 5000 art shows I have setup and tore down all over the country or maybe it is that I have survived successfully as a professional artist for 26 years in all kinds of economy crashes and still manage to bring light to life, light to love, happiness to 10’s of thousands of people in all parts of the world through my paintings or maybe the inspiration of the loving upbringing from my amazing parents, or the Italian immigrant ancestral passionate strength & endurance to survive, or perhaps, as my prince charming says it best, I am a “Hard Headed Women” that believes life and our spiritual journey is all about REVELATIONS OF TRUTH.
Infinite Revelation is my wish for you…. Just that! May you overcome your barriers, find strength in your trails and find revelations that assist you in your journey to live a life full of dreams, joy, spiritual growth and most of all love.
No matter what your religion, or belief, one thing remains true, we are all in this together. And when we treat one another the way we want to be treated, we all win!
Much Love to you all!
