Creative Therapy Catalyst #126

I've decided to join some of the things happening
in Blogland this coming year and will be
posting about them on my blog.
the idea is to use different forms of creative
and artistic expression as therapy.
The newest catalyst is
"tell about a time when someone hurt your feelings"

This sketch above reflects a very painful
memory of a New Years Eve a few years ago.
I had arranged for myself, and someone
I loved, to go for a special New Years trip
to a beautiful, sunny beach and stay at
a lovely hotel.
On New Years Eve the day began to go
wrong early on and as the evening
advanced things began to fall apart.
Half way through dinner I left the table in tears
and went alone to my room because of
the hurtful things that had been said.

I chose to use only black and gray for the
colors in the sketch even tho my tendency is
to use a lot of color in all my crafts
so the feeling would be dark and sad.
It may seem an odd post for New Years Eve
but I hope it will help me heal and forgive
the past...
(It helps me to know that the person who hurt me
had a disease and I didn't realize it, so now
their behavior is easier to understand)

I hope each of you will have a safe
AND HAPPY New Year's Eve!
