111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression
Day 102: Sisters
I have a lot to teach you, Little Sister
About all that I’ve learned in the last four years
I’ll read you stories and give you kisses
And tell you to rat on our brother when he does something bad
I’ll sing you a song when you cry
Then hold your hand as you rock in your swing
I love you, Little Sister, from now until forever.
I have a lot to learn, Big Sister
Will you teach me?
When you read, I watch your mouth move
And hear the sounds you make
I see you smile, so I do the same
I follow you around the room with my eyes
And grab your hand when you sit by my swing
I love you, Big Sister, for now and always.
**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 9 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
