Art: ...meditation AND acceptance... by Artist Selva  Solimar
Just discovered the world of ACEOs! WOW! They can be sooo addicting! *giggles*

This self portrait was taken only 3 months after nearly a 2 week hospitalization for advanced heart failure caused by cardiomyopathy (an enlarged heart). I had a defibrillator pacemaker installed...hubby loves me more now that I'm more like his car! *heehee*

I'm enjoying this time in my life...I've had some really challenging and eye-opening experiences in the last 14 years. Congestive heart failure brought on by cardiomyopathy (...hey, mom always said I had a big heart...LOL), at the age of 30 (1995), and again at 41 (2007) that led to being placed on a heart transplant list.

This made me reflect on how I was living my life and how I really wanted to be living it...not that I haven't always thought about that, but I want to make sure that I savor every fleeting moment while I can! I, now, understand that "crisis" that we all [eventually] have to face...be it mid-life or not!
