Today I said goodbye to one of the major components that made up my life, my support system, my best friend, the only way I could truly express myself. Today I said goodbye to art. Not forever, but for 2 years. I said goodbye. It was a slaughter, a death to art supplies. Empty paints, bad brushes, scraps of papers, tins and paint trays, etcetera, were thrown out. I got rid of anything that wouldn't last the 2 years to see my return home again. But before falling to their death they got to have one last use, one final stand.
It made me realize,
death can be one beautiful thing.
