Capacity For Love




 
To create a piece illustrating our favorite possession was yet another prompt during last month’s healing art retreat at CHOMP.  Although not a “possession” by standard definition, I thought of love and how we possess the ability to love and be loved, how approaching life with a loving, open heart can reward us in countless ways outnumbering any risks.  Love can be inspiring, motivating, energizing, encouraging, comforting and yes, healing.  A boundless capacity for love…this is my favorite "possession," what fuels my spirit, gives me strength, keeps positivity in the forefront and negativity at bay and creates a purposeful, meaningful life.
