“Living the Now”

“Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life” Mary Oliver

Girl Noticed, Stage 4 Cancer Survivor, Marin County, CA

Today started out, not so great.  I have found myself the past few weeks having to consciously change the tone of my day.

You see, I have a choice. I can choose to stay in the muck or dig out and live in the now, which usually isn’t quite as bad as my mind would like to make it. 

My choice is to slow down.

My choice is to be intentional with what I want.

My choice is to be grateful and show gratitude.

My choice is to recognize the things I “want” are already with me.

A series of detailed photorealistic charcoal portraits created as large exterior murals by artist Lori Pratico depicting a diverse group of girls and women of all ages. Each mural will depict one individual in charcoal which will fade away over time. Depending on weather conditions, murals can last days, weeks or months. This representing the intention of the project, which is: “If gone unnoticed, all what was there may fade away, disappear, and never be seen.”
