The sky is falling….tears started like a slow trickle sliding down my face. I first used my sleeves to wipe here and there relieved to have sun glasses on to mask my sorrow, disappointment, bafflement at my state of being, and on public transport no one noticed or if so it was no bother to them. Suddenly the tears began streaming down my face like a stream faster then could be brushed away. Why feel is my question, why feel hurt, why feel disappointment, and quickly I text my bestie for a voice of reason before sorrow devoured me. I felt ashamed to be so heart broken even though it was not a wound self inflicted…strange to be angry with oneself for trusting, believing, or is it true that happily ever after is only in movies, children’s books, or in tragedy like Romeo and Juliet.

A native to the Pacific Northwest, I was born and raised on the Hilltop in Tacoma WA. I am a creative and enjoy the flexibility of being a Mixed Media Artist. My work is politically driven, introspective, and tells a story whether past, present, or future. I recently entered the Public Art arena and look forward to uniting my visionary ideas and education to create lasting public works that will speak for generations to come. I have a Master of Public Health from Argosy University-Online, Associates of Arts and Science from Tacoma Community College, a Bachelor of Liberal Arts from Evergreen State College-Tacoma Campus, and Owner of ND Art Studios. My dream is to set up and run a non-profit Urban Development and Rural Project Management organization. My motto: Engage, Inspire, Create. Art Flow, LaQuita S. Thurman View all posts by ND Art Studios
