You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
~Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
These are two of my favorite paintings—not just for the joy the colors bring but for the piece of me I accessed while creating them—a universal love that resides in every one of us. These beautiful words by Max Ehrmann have been a balm to my heart during heavier times, never failing to remind me of my inherent beauty and belonging. Art is truly medicine.
