I started a blog a few years ago because my mom died. I felt this overwhelming need to let the world know that she had been here. She never valued herself enough. I stopped because it became more about my dad…enough said. I have begun again, except this time it is a blog for me, because like my mom I never valued myself enough. I am an artist, I was born one, but I was afraid to expose my talent for fear of being judged. It is my time now, I don’t want my daughter to feel the need to blog about me.
