Skill #2 in the path to resilience has been posted. As I mentioned it before one of my day jobs is the coordinator for the Hear/d Art residency at AUArtsSA . I love working with university students create art work that explores their mental health and their path to resilience. I love mentoring emerging artists to thrive in their art practice not just mere survive. It is work that fills me to the rim and I will always work towards empowering of others . I have had the privilege of given this opportunity of@making a difference and I take that seriously . My own art and my own journey have given me a skill set that I hope is of serve to other artists and people in general. Have a listen to the self talk video and share your thoughts and observations.

I made this style of #postcard eons ago. I was playing around with colour and pattern then threw the text on as an afterthought.
I struggle with quotes and phrases, but I like ambiguous word pairings that can have multiple meanings. I thought the idea of having this written on a postcard was particularly entertaining. Now it seems painfully appropriate.
