RESILIENCE

Resilience is a skill that allows you to cope
with challenges with greater clarity and inner strength.
Resilient people not only survive after a setback,
they come back stronger and wiser.
We now know that resilience can be developed.
Think of resilience as an emotional muscle
that can be strengthened at any time.
There are specific action steps you can take
to speed up your emotional recovery
in times of stress.

CATHERINE_BDAYCARD_ANNE_GFAM_F_2020

CATHERINE_BDAY_ANNE_GFAM_B_2020

My sister, Anne, and her family gave me the birthday card – above.
Anne, Thomas, Olivia and their Springer Spaniel Chelsea
drove from Chanhassen to see me!

DELIGHT!

We went to Battle Creek Dog Park!
Of course,  my K9 Zachary accompanied!
Two hours 2gether
after such immeasurable absence
was beyond beautiful for me.
As I opened the card, Anne said: “This card is you!”
“YES!: my niece and nephew agreed!
I cannot express the poignant joy
I experienced upon looking at the illustration
entwined with my sister’s perception
of
me.

My heart bloomed:

to be seen as such!

I decided to show what was given to me
as an equivalence testament
was gold to me.

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary
refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution,
which reads:

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,

 

except as a punishment for crime whereof the party

shall have been duly convicted,

 

shall exist within the United States.”

X

X

The progression from that second qualifying clause
to the horrors of mass criminalization
and the sprawling American prison industry
is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity.

X

With a potent mixture of archival footage
and testimony from a dazzling array of activists,
politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men,

DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

All The Things You Are

X

Time and again I’ve longed for adventure,
Something to make my heart beat the faster.
What did I long for? I never really knew.
Finding your love I’ve found my adventure,
Touching your hand, my heart beats the faster,
All that I want in all of this world is you.

X

(chorus)

X

You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long.
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights a star,
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Some day my happy arms will hold you,
And some day I’ll know that moment divine,
When all the things you are, are mine!

The

ALLTHETHINGSYOUARE I-X

PORTFOLIO

X

is comprised of 10 collages.

XX

X

X

Each collage

is an improvisation, a visual riff,

samplings from this beautiful love song

created in 1939.

X

It is my favorite love song.

X

The song describes a romantic love

 that is a natural,

an ever-changing sacred energy,

not a tether, nor a possession,

but,

an exploration of a majestic,

expansive,

improvisational open field

full of wonder and humility,

an ever evolving

 breath

of  

the very life  of  life

itself.

 

X

X

Love is the promised kiss of springtime.

I started the portfolio

in the beginning of springtime

and

completed the portfolio  towards the end of  summer

–  still beholding + enveloping the vestiges of spring’s chartreuse.
