Thoughts on Health… the Brain

There’s a lot of suffering in thinking you should know and be right and figure things out and that sort of thing. When we are out there in ego, we believe we can know and should know. When we come back to center, we realize that we don’t know and we don’t need to know. So it’s a coming back to center that has us on the right path. – Cheri Huber The brain is our knowledge power house. It is our database, stores our memories, sorts facts, a filing cabinet which processes new information and fits in into our …

Thoughts on Health… Our Hearts

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi When I sat down to brainstorm how I was going to make an inspirational collage of the heart out of my med school anatomy book, I started by making a list. A list of all the words that I felt represented the *energy* of the heart. Truth. Love. Joy. Heartsong. Re-centering. Life Force. Source. Freedom. Health. Gratitude. Obviously we have a heart to pump blood (and thereby deliver oxygen and nutrition) to every …

Guest blog on being an Artist Trapped in a Physician’s body

First of all, YIPPEE! My blog is back! I hated not being able to post this past week and a half… but I’m up and running again, with a new website. There are lots of new features, starting with a main homepage, and tabs for the shop, my blog, etc… On Monday, I temporarily was able to satisfy my urge to blog (while my own site was down for construction) by guest blogging on the fabulous Art Snark’s blog. I wrote an article on how the world of health collides with the world of art. Please check it out! I’ll …

Opening to intuition

“Dynamic Universe” I painted this canvas for a customer who wanted something similar to my original canvas painting “Love Is Everywhere,” but larger. I asked if she had any specific requests for this newer version, but she gave me complete artistic license to follow my gut while painting it. And I’m so very glad she did. I had no idea what was to come, but I trusted and gave it a start. I love how the background took on a richer, more orange hue… and as I worked the many layers into the canvas, I noticed this orange color really …

My daughter, the artist

I’ve known for quite a long time that my daughter is extremely skilled at drawing. She could draw animals and people with details like facial features and horns and beaks and tails when she was just one and a half years old. I had an acquaintance tell me right to my face that this was impossible at age one, the brain couldn’t handle it. My daughter’s brain can. Simple as that. She is really amazing at art. At 8 years old, she is by several decades the youngest person in a clay class we take together. Her stuff is always …
