My Journey Through Art

My Journey Through Art

Winter 2015, Living Well Magazine

The following pieces are just a couple of the beautiful works by our past Life & Living participant Linda Maurer.  Featuring 10 pieces of artwork and supporting poetry, Linda’s exhibition aptly titled “My Journey – Ability, Disability and Cancer” is a touching display of vulnerability and courage.

Mixed Emotions

The cancer has returned.
In my lungs.
Inoperable… they say.
Incurable… they say.
Enjoy your time… they say.
I say… Enjoy this moment.
I say… Keep your hopes alive.
I say… Believe in yourself
In your own light.


I fall
I rise
I stumble
I balance
I fear
I hope
I move
