Before I delve into Robert Frost, I want to share some news: I got hitched a few months ago! Okay, the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony is more like it. (I try to shy away from sharing details of my personal life, but it ties in with this post, so...there. :lol:) He's basically the Sicilian version of me, only talks more and is a slightly better cook, although I'm still waiting for lasagna. Mmmm. Lasagna. Yes, please! 
:iconlasagnaplz: :iconyumplz::icongimmeplz:

And so, the title of this journal. Well, one of my favorite poems is The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. Its message is commonly misunderstood; it isn't basic and superficial stuff of greeting cards. Frost's poem is ironic, it's about writing and rewriting our history; it's not about a better road; it's not an anthem of independence. The road I choose to tread upon is interchangeable with others I may choose. And whatever road we choose to take, we may have opposing feelings: glad, or regretful. But either way, the time which passes is lost. Acceptance is necessary, owning our decisions, our history, our story, is necessary. Is it so bad to experience a thorny road taken? I wouldn't be who I am today, all the more wise, from certain thorny roads I chose to take.
A few years ago, I started down a road that changed me forever. It was a thorny, painful road which lead to surprising and beautiful happenings. And now, as a result of that path, I'm going through a transitional time. I learned from that road taken and with the decisions I made, that I'm about to embark on another road. Though I'm about to go on a path treading into the unknown, I will at least own that I -- much like Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken  -- am seeking to find meaning in an arbitrary decision.

TL;DR version: Whatever I'm facing and what happens after, it's because what happens will happen...and God allows it.

More to come, also art updates.

Pax vobiscum. Deo Gratias. :iconredheartplz:

:heart: Hello, and welcome to my page. Here, I hope that you will find relaxing fine artistic images. I'm a fan of ASMR and find it immensely helpful in my own life, so I aim for my own art to be designed, in a sense, to be calming, welcoming, healing.

Aquarelle is French for watercolor. Watercolor is such a relaxing medium, where the paint combines with the gentle, flowing water in creating special effects that is a delight. The painting itself is relaxing, but I love the sounds of mixing paint, the sound of swirling brushes in the glass of water, the slight drip-drops of splashing color on paper.

As I paint, I find myself relaxed, brush stroke by brush stroke, gentleness and kind, welcoming and beautiful.

I paint a lot of flowers, as flowers are beautiful and create joy. Many of my paintings will be transitions for a greater purpose (cards and prints) but for now I invite you to enjoy the gentleness of watercolor and soft strokes.

My DeviantArt page is a place for all, those who seek healing, those who seek beauty, those who seek relaxation. Welcome, and joy to you.
