since i only started this blog a few days ago , i was not able to celebrate with a post on having 11 years of sobriety.
on april 5th ( very gratefully ) i was able to manage 11 years of sobriety from alcohol.
i pray everyday for clear vision and thinking. i gave up much and gained more than i could ever imagine .
we are all on our own paths. please respect that..
so as i sit in judgement do i judge myself ?
the purpose of this blog is raise my consciousness ! separate from the ego, not engage the " pain body "
how can i forgive even if someone does not forgive me ?
how can you walk away with no closure ?
what did "I" do ?
so yesterday i left work early to see what i could see. i went to the Laguardia Gardens where my good friend Sara Jones contributes her expert gardening skills....
about LaGuardia Community Garden
LaGuardia began in 1974 as a community vegetable garden on a lot just below Washington Square Park that was owned by The Jewish Cultural Center. When the land was sold in 1980 the community garden was forced to either dissolve or move. With the help of GreenThumb they found a new location just as the bulldozers were arriving. It was only one block away and they have been there now for more than 25 years.
ok, this image is not the first or last in a series of portraits that i am working on. the portrait is an interesting way of connecting with yourself and the subject.
at first i found the idea of shooting people scary to say the least ! but as i continue i am finding i can connect.
as well i am gaining confidence. and learning so much about how i operate in this world.
