An Ode to Art • by Tracy Verdugo

Tracy VerdugoOh sweet creative spark that stirred inside me 19 years ago—the birth of my art journey, coinciding with the powerful moment of the birth of our first daughter, gently nudging me to begin to try to express myself in paint, in words, in song, in dance.

You have given me the gift of easing my anxious mind, slowing down my racing thoughts that sometimes turned to panic in those days before I knew the healing power that could be found in a gentle stroke of brush on paper, in the listening between the notes, in the quiet watching of the shadows and the light seen through the eyes of an artist, in the appreciation of the beauty in all things …

You have guided me through the terror of showing my true self to others, watching as I eased into singing on stage and putting my paintings out into the world, watching as I began to guide others on their own creative journeys and in so doing, began to understand my own journey more fully.

I thank you for showing me the beauty of others reflected back to me, mirrors of each other, and for giving me the grace of realizing more each moment that in shining my creative light brightly, I can truly allow others the gift of shining their own.
