Recent Heartbreak - Painting Hiatus.

Post by Katurah on Sun Nov 24, 2013 3:20 am

I'll be doing some personal projects here and there, but I think I'm taking a hiatus for a little bit. Not for long, but my family has been pretty shooken up in the last week. Hopefully you all don't mind me ranting here.

One of my closest cousins, he was literally raised like my brother, at just 21 was murdered last Friday at around 9 pm. Shot in cold blood and left on the porch of a friends house. The police are working on leads but so far they think people are afraid to talk... He was suppose to leave town for his new job last Sunday.

I'm urging you all to take a stand against the violence in you community. However you can, my cousin was an innocent man, be thankful for everyday you have.

Here's a news article written after my mother wrote into the newspaper to let them know that he nephew will not be a forgotten story:

And an article written about a meeting against gun violence on the day of my cousins wake:

I too recently had a few tragedies rock my world. The painting has really helped me get through it....puts my mind on something positive. Feel free to rant-I haven't reached that point yet, just not ready to go there yet....but I appreciate hearing you open up about this. It is a great message and gives me a bit of comfort to be thankful, knowing that you have shared this with us. I'll miss you during your hiatus Sad

It is an awful thing that happened to you and your Family. So unjustified.... It's just not fair...
Helas, that is what life is all about... Not always fair...
I hope you can find a way to deal with it. Take all the time you need.
Know we'll be thinking about you, and when the time comes, you will know to be ready to paint again.

Sending you my hugs and wishing you lots of strength through these rough times!

Katurah,

You are always in my heart.

The article about violence gets my blood boiling, too. It's so frustrating to know that communities are not getting the help and support they need for basic protection from those who mean to do harm to others. It really is unfair that this goes on and most of the rest of the country turns a blind eye.

Please do not be gone long. I will miss you and so many others will, too. I've always felt like I was your face painting mom! I love you

I feel for you Katurah, (I have a son who was dumped in a field). It is a deep soul-searching time, that enlarges the borders of your family & draws it incredibly close. Watch for the punch-throughs from the Other Side from him--it will totally rock your world & be such an incredible comfort. Tears, Hugs and Prayers for you my dear.

What they all said, Katurah. Sending you huge love and caring. Life is so not fair (and I'll never "get" that), but you will move forward one day into a new kind of peace and hope, and part of that will be carrying him forward inside you, and loving people with some of his light coming through. You will.

I'm sorry to hear your news Katurah. It's sickening, all these senseless killings. There was just one a few blocks from me. You're right, we have to live each moment, you never know what happens. My condolences xoxo

Thank you all for your love. It has really helped, I picked up my brush after almost a month of no painting, I couldn't stay away to long. It helped take my mind off of everything, and I can say it brought me such happiness to be able to do what I love with my kiddies again.

Photos to come.
