Finding My Wings...

Hi everyone!
So many things have happened during this week.
My uncle passed away one Monday and we have been sharing some family time, very sad days for all of us.
This got me thinking: life is a series of events that determine who we are.
Then, why don't I feel comfortable being who I am?
Maybe in my heart I know that there are things to come, that will help me get there, but then again, where is there?
I have to learn and understand who I am in order to feel complete, I know that this journey is just beginning, but I am ready for it.
Today my lovely partner in crime told me:
"Find your wings and fly".
My wings will set me free... then, I might be complete.
I felt the need to work on my art journal and here is the page:

For this mixed media art journal page I used: watercolors, acrylics, Gelatos, Dylusions Ink  and Distress Inks.
I invite you to find your wings and fly!!!
I want to share this at:
