The Artist Within is Open!

Opening ReceptionThe Artist Within celebrated its Opening Reception on January 7th and what a wonderful event it was!  Nearly 200 people gathered to view this fascinating artwork.

Among the crowd were a number of the artists and their families – all so happy and proud.  They kept thanking me and I kept thanking them – all of us thrilled to share this wonderful art.

It underscores a very important message.  If we can let go of the person who used to be and embrace the valuable person who is with us now – if we can join then in their reality instead of trying to “bring them back” to ours, we will all be immeasurably enriched.

Next Wednesday, January 13 join us for a unique event.
