“You should put them online to share.”
“Why?” she replied.
“To share,” I said, surprised at the question. “There are people who would love to see your stuff, it’s unique, the colors are fresh..you have a great style.”
“I don’t want to put them online. That’s weird,” she said.
I knew she was shy, but I wanted her to open up, and this would be a great way for her to see how she could be widely appreciated.
“It’s easy,” I said.
“I don’t want to share my stuff. It’s for me.” she said.
We haven’t communicated in a long time. But I am happy today, because today I saw her art. Online. She had begun to share herself.
She had stopped hiding, and started becoming an inspiration.
An inspiration for others to share themselves, too, despite their fears.
