Jacqueline Sullivan's Appreciation of Jenny Groat
Jacqueline's tribute is personal and profound. She shares Jenny's wisdom and her accomplishments: The artist as dancer, The artist as designer, The artist as painter, The artist as inspiration. There is a long section on Knowing, Not Knowing that gets to the core of Jenny's philosophy and deep compassion.
Jenny suggested that we think of ourselves as vessels. She said that we could not just keep pouring things into the vessel. "You must," she said, "give something up." Give up something, she suggested, that is getting in your way. Give up fear and your lack of security and replace it with courage and trust in your bigger self. She gave us the mantra "settle yourself on yourself and let the flower of your life blossom."
