Anxiety by VanadiumTaintedBeryl
Anxiety
That awful, fluttering feeling in your heart that you can't control. 

Anxiety
Image is 22" x 30" mixed media on Arches hot-pressed watercolor paper.  The work is matted and framed, so it is larger than that. 
This piece is from a group show in which I participated at Fe Galley in Sacramento.  It was a great show with some wonderful work.  Unfortunately I sent this girl to the framers before I got a decent image of her, so I had to wait for her to come home before I could post anything. 

Anyways, she is home now and available to a good home.  Shoot me a message at emerald.barkleygmail if you are interested or have any questions.  Or, check out my website at emeraldbarkley.com

Thanks!

Change.

But start slowly, because direction is more important than speed.

Sit in a different chair, on the other side of the table.
Later on, change tables.

When you go out, try walking on the other side of the street. Then, change your route, walk calmly down other streets, observing closely where they take you.

Take a different bus. Change for a while the style of clothes you wear; give away your old shoes and try to walk barefoot for a few days, even if it’s just indoors.

Spend a whole afternoon strolling about freely, listening to the birds singing or the noise of cars,

Open and close drawers and doors with your left hand

Sleep on the other side of the bed. Then try sleeping in other beds.

Watch other TV programs, read other books, live other romances even if it’s only in your imagination.

Go to sleep later. Go to sleep earlier.
Learn a new word every day.

Eat a little less, eat a little more, eat differently; choose new seasonings, new colors, things you never dared to try.

Have lunch in other places, go to other restaurants, order another kind of drink and buy bread at another bakery.

Have lunch earlier, have dinner later, or vice versa.

Try something new every day: a new side, a new method, a new flavor, a new way of doing something, a new pleasure, a new position.

Pick another market, another brand of soap or toothpaste.

Take a bath at different times.
Use pens with different colors.
Go and visit other places.

Love more and in different ways. Even when you think the other person may be frightened, suggest what you always dreamed of doing when it comes to sex.

Change your bag, your wallet, and your suitcases, buy new glasses, and write other poems.

Open an account at another bank. Visit other cinemas, other hairdressers, other theaters, visit new museums.

Change, and think seriously of finding another job, a new job, more like what you expect from life, more dignified, more human.

If you do not find reasons to be free, invent them: be creative.

And take the opportunity to make a modest but long trip, and if possible, without a destination.

Experience new things. Change again. Change again. Try again.

You will undoubtedly encounter things greater and worse than that which you already know, but that's not what matters.

The most important thing is change, movement, dynamism, energy.

Only what is dead does not change, and you are alive.

- by a fan of Paulo Coelho (translated from Spanish by Carolina Urban)
