Dad is facing a new challenge! So does art actually heal? @RubbleGallery Jan 21 #fatherdaughter #arttherapy

As Dad enters a new chapter, essentially a new battle for his life (cancer has reappeared), we are grateful that art  is helping us process this and is distracting us from the scary road ahead.  On Friday, after a scope, I loved watching Dad excitedly get back to his desk to get back to work.  We’re savouring every minute.  ART HEALS.  It doesn’t cure.  It doesn’t solve problems.  But it’s a tool.  And in the moment of creation, it does heal the spirit.

I hope you get a chance to drop in Saturday Jan 21 at the Rubble Gallery 7-9 PM.  There will be art displayed, on sale, and ready to interact with!

    You’re so blessed to be able to share your artistic gifts with your dad. Wish I could join you at the opening, but I’d already made plans to attend LaLa Dance that night.

    1. Love you, Laura! OMG LaLa- I was OBSESSED with them when I was a dancer in the 80’s!!!
