My last post was 6/15/14. The day after that, I had a stroke. On 6/16/14 I went to bed and woke up almost a week later. I had difficulty walking, talking and writing. It has been a long month, alot of changes have happened in the past month. Today I painted my first painting since the stroke. It felt awesome to create again, I have thought about it for a month. Strange thing is while I was having the stroke and after, mentally, I was painting. I dont know if that makes sense to anyone but it does me. Your mind protects you, and my mind protected me by painting. The painting above was fairly easy, considering the fact that I have been painting her for a month.
