“Art opens your eyes to three very important realities. Even if you only see one of the three, it can already make you a much happier person. The three of them form an extremely intoxicating happiness cocktail. Being:

- the reality of the world

- other people's reality

- the reality of yourself"

Bridget Watson Payne in 'How art can make you happy'


About fifty years ago I decided: I'd rather have Gestalt therapy than pills so as not to disappear into a mental institution - like my father - or - like my husband - to become a slave to alcohol. Now that I'm 80 plus and healthy with some ailments but without a medication list, I know that the listen-to-my-feelings  path I'm taking is right. From client I became a Gestalt therapist and discovered that Gestalt is also an art and realized art can be magic.
