Its not an emptiness, it’s more of a gnawing.

In a moment’s silence during my day I feel it inside me and with that comes a longing. 

For fulfillment, for expression, the visual satisfaction of ink on paper.

With days flowing into weeks I become restless, occupied as my mind mixes pallets of ideas; though never painting the canvas.


Everyone requires more of me.


Responsibilities commanding a scheduled life where becoming lost in thought seems only a fantasy.

If I could dive down into my imaginary mind, would I find depth? 

What about treasure?

Would I feel amazement or disappointment?

I find a Hunger in me.  It’s a gnawing in my insides and only feed on expression..

I am taking the artist in me off the restricted meal plan and letting her feast on the Expression Buffet.
