365 Grateful

Posted on: July 7th, 2011

This week I found a post by fellow Art Therapist, Gretchen Miller, about 365 Grateful. This is was a project by photographer and filmmaker, Hailey Bartholomew, who used photography to find something she was grateful every day for a year. I found this short video to be inspiring about taking a moment to find those things for which I can be grateful.

I will soon be blogging on a new WordPress site that will be integrated into my new counseling and art therapy website, designed by the fabulous, Corinne Loperfido. I hope to launch this week if all goes as planned. For now, stay cool and
Be Well,

Deep Eddy Mural and Video

Posted on: July 5th, 2011

My friend and fellow art therapist Wanda Montemayor sent me this video about the tiles we made on Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day with teen mother’s this past May at Travis High School. I think you will like it.

This past week I was also able to help with the Deep Eddy Mural Project by installing tiles down at the pool. Here I am with gloves and sponge in hand. More work to do this week.

My great great grandfather, Charles Johnson, who immigrated from Sweden, once owned the land where Deep Eddy now stands. There is historical information about him on the mural which for me was another surprise. I love Austin even in this unbearable heat.
