But what struck a chord most was her final sentence where she quoted something the late Carrie Fisher said to her:
“Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
I love that. It totally sums up where I am at the moment. So much bad stuff happened last year – horrible stuff, sad stuff, stuff that we know is going to cause problems for years to come. It broke my heart. It broke many people’s hearts.
But it’s made me resolve to throw my passion and my energy more into the people I love and into art – in all its forms. I want to write and draw and illustrate. I want to learn and explore new creative skills. I want to experience art created by other people, to read and watch and see and feel and listen and devour art in all its glorious forms.
“Take your broken heart. Make it into art.”
That. Just, that.
