I recently received some news that led me down a path of fear and worry. My body, being a responsible citizen, wanted to be sure I registered the stress. While doing simple yoga stretches, I was suddenly unable to move my neck and experiencing a lot of pain. I saw my massage therapist (Ali Childs who is amazing and made it so I could turn my head again). My sweet mom massaged arnica cream on the most sore areas which brought comfort. But it wasn't until I went blueberry picking that I found relief from my fears and worries (and as a result the residual pain in my neck). Something about walking amongst rows of gorgeous bushes just bursting with sweetness consumed me completely, and I rested into the bounty and blessing of the present. I am thankful I had the chance to paint whispers of this joyful moment of reprieve.
