I made this little mixed media piece circa 2003, The Fool seemed fitting for this year. This was my attempt to familiarize myself with the Tarot….we all have our strengths and reading cards is not mine….thank goodness I have PT for that. This is my little poem that goes with it….I can’t help myself….I need to rhyme.
Adventure awaits you,
have the courage to embrace.
Your spirit is awakening,
flowering with grace.
You have the potential,
don’t deny what’s inside.
No more running from the fear,
there is nowhere to hide.
The possibilities are endless,
open your heart and see.
Welcoming a time of new beginnings,
and discovering who you are are meant to be.
Zia Odanata circa 2003
I am not a poet and yet I still write them. I am giving you everything in 2015, there is no holding back!
My aspirations……I have quite a few.
I will strive to continue to battle the belly bulge…..maybe if I cut out the wine. 1 red is good but 2 and sometimes 3 is really bad. I am going to stop being so horribly mean to myself. I am 44 not 24 so when I look in the mirror I am going to stop beating myself up for not looking 20yrs younger. I found an 18 yr old picture and you will get the idea since I was this size most of my life….notice there is no belly. Big hair(it was 1989) and still baby fat face…but no belly.
Be nicer to myself …..first thing.
Learn Italian, which was a resolution in 2007…..before the Cockroach turned my world upside down. I WILL rectify that this year.
Learn Italian….second thing.
Perfect Bloody Mary….third thing.
I also have horrible penmanship. I found some grade school report cards all A’s and B’s and a big fat C in handwriting. My whole life you can read it bit it’s not pretty. Old dog…new tricks? I am going to give it my best!
Improving penmanship…fourth thing.
Be myself and write more…fifth thing.
These are not resolutions, it’s more like a self improvement DIY. Happy New Year everybody!….Zia
