Creating your Queendom Interview with Lynn Waite

What is living life to the fullest according to Lynn?

Surrounding myself daily with people I love, and with things that I love to do. My environment is hugely important to me. I’m truly a visually oriented person, so enjoying what I’m doing with my hands is very important. But always, number-one, is the people in my life.

And, if I think of how to live a full and rich life, I think back to what my mother wrote to my sister a few days before she passed away, and I’ve written on the glass up at the store. It’s, “If I had my life to do over, I’d just love everybody more.” I try to remind myself of that every day. It gives me the shivers every time I think it or say it. And, I don’t always succeed, but I think that’s part of a full life too - acknowledging that within yourself. And then being able to make the adjustments you need to make the apologies you need to make. Sincere apologies, not the “I’m so sorry for what happened.” That’s not a real apology in my mind. A real apology is saying, I’m sorry I did that to you.

I’m going to say that painting almost daily for almost 30 years has taught me how to operate outside the studio. I have never given up on a painting. When I was working on Pele I had made a perceived mistake. I was judging this piece, and it was on Pele in the clouds in the sky, the spirit of the Black Mamo. I saw it and I literally took a bottle of paint, said, “No mistake namaste.” I poured it over this perceived mistake. And, this bird appeared in the painting.
