"icon" (9" x 12" mixed media)

"The real miracle of individuation and reclamation of the Wild Woman is that we all begin the process before we are ready, before we are strong enough, before we know enough; we begin a dialogue with thoughts and feelings that both tickle and thunder within us. We respond before we know how to speak the language, before we know all the answers, and before we know exactly to whom we are speaking."

-Clarissa Pinkola Estes (b. 1945)

Stacy - when I saw your "icon" work last evening on Facebook, before I had any idea who or what she represented, I "knew" that she was the "me" that I lost so many years has taken me over thirty years to find her and reclaim her....while I am sad that she was lost so many years, I am happy that she is lost no more!

Your work is beautiful - just like you...when I think of you, I always see your smile...grace and peace, Patricia
