As I see it, this is no ordinary umbrella. This umbrella belonged to my dear mother. It stands propped up against the piano, year round, sharing its history daily.
Solid, beautiful, unique.
It is my intention to bring interests in healing, art and photography all under one umbrella. As one may offer a companion, protection from the elements, by sharing an umbrella, I too, hope to bring together companions on life’s sacred journey; beauty, light, nature, healing, discovery, creativity, uncertainty, wonderment, vulnerability, joy, love, validation… May these experiences find a sanctuary for expression and healing under the umbrella of Delightful Healing Arts.
An umbrella has no purpose during a cold and snowy Minnesota winter; yet, metaphorically, it is that which covers all.
As I share with you this retrospective umbrella, I am also introducing you to my vision for Delightful Healing Arts.
