This is Molly @thedarlingrevolution.
She is an incredible artist, the most lovely woman I've had the privelege of sharing time with, friend to all humans, cheerleader of creative expression, intuitive extraordinaire, and an arbiter of raw magic. The words I have to share what I feel about this woman will destroy the word limit of any social platform, so I'll leave that for another time.
I've been lucky enough to work with her @attheyards
to share a studio and to sell artwork together side by side, which we're doing tomorrow from 10a to 2p, so come on by. We sold seperate pieces of our work to the same couple. It's so adorable it'll make you wanna vomit rainbows.
This is my happy place.
My life has been a pretty lonely place of missed connections, no space to speak, not much belief that I deserve what I want, and not feeling like a good person.
I didn't think I had any tools for connection. I'm not loud, emotionally responsive, or even all that dependable. I was direct. I said terrible things.
Why would anyone love me?
So, to have a partner that sees me as positive, loveable, talented, and connects with me is something I cherish more than anything. And yes, that happened because I deserve love and keep evolving to find my way to express love but also because she is a person beyond the scope of my imagination in holding space, talent, strength, vulnerability, and just lights me on fire in
all the best ways.
We push each other and we tend to find the edge of where we need to grow and find out how to grow.
With her I've had the opportunity to understand for myself that my words are my expression. That because I am not overtly emotional physically or reactively, that my words are doing everything it can to express what my tears, tonality, or way of being cannot.
I keep attempting to use new words because I have a lifetime of expression in me to make up for. My truth and my logic is my love.
That's why I podcast.
That's why I've started writing.
That's why I tweet so much.
That's why I can talk to Molly for hours on end.
To dig deeper into who I am and love through logic, metaphor, and ultimately, keep finding love.
How do you express love?
