Painting is an escape. When I paint, I'm taken away to a place where there's no PD. It's like going on a vacation without leaving home.
I escape from this body, into a place of solitude, calmness and peace. It's there where I am alone and I don't have to hide my illness.
My thoughts are with the subject. I am painting only -- I don't think about my future that is so scary -- where everything has been taken away from me. Where I'm a burden to everyone. I'm so thankful for today!
I can still paint and slip away for a moment or so -- to go on that mini vacation. I face each day with HOPE for a CURE -- that I'm sure will come, but maybe not in my lifetime.
