Eleanor Roosevelt

I wanted to add that the painting I posted below came about as I thought about a woman who I admired as part of my "Life Book" course on Tamara Laporte's "Willowing" site. She was such an incredible woman fighting for equality in all its forms. There are many great quotes attributed to her and many make you smile in their irony but this next one really resonates with me and I have really found these words ring true for me. "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt
