This is Michelle the Goddess. She doesn't call herself that but I call her that because she is beautiful inside and out. She's just the kind of person one strives to emulate - learn from. Weedy peoples like myself lean into Michelle's light to gain warmth and understanding.
Michelle and I were thrown into our friendship in a recovery program for the chronically creatively dysfunctional called "Artist's Way". You connect with people differently when you enter into relationships really messed up and looking for redemption. When your in the thick of it, if you're lucky, you find a Goddess. I certainly did.
The program is in our past but we still strive to dig deep and shake out our creative selves from time to time. Together we watch the dust motes fly wild when we laugh then slowly settle around us as we tip our wine glasses to our lips. We smile knowingly. I am so thankful for my dear friend, Michelle the Goddess. Long may you run.
