Reflections

Winter on Cape Ann MA ~ Brrr ~ Too early!

Winter on Cape Ann MA ~ Brrr ~ Too early!

Right now I am reflecting on Word Press and whether I like this approach or not ~ Always a learning curve ~ yet always good to be learning ~ learning is creative as well as the arts such as photography, painting, music, writing ~ Creativity is in all of us and many choose to not see it, I guess.

Moving forward ~ writing allows me time to reflect and be. Flowing with the now and enjoying the music in the background and the warm cutie dog beside me. After I have been out a bit for the day she is always so happy to have me back home and wants to’snuggle’ close. I enjoy her company and love her so much. Sometimes, especially in winter, I have to really push myself out the door to do things with friends, family and fellow artists. Then there is always the usual ‘errands’ we all need to do.

Life can be as simple or as complex as you would like. Do you enjoy complexity, simplicity or an equal balance of both or do you get bored with simplicity? I think Simplicity is beautiful ~ also enjoy a healthy dose at times of complexity.

Enjoy ~ xox

¬†TODAY’S REFLECTIONS ~

Seem to be in a ‘transitional state’ ~ reflecting on moving forward, yet, before I do so I need to be more like my ‘little assistant’ below and explore the territory and weed out what is¬†unnecessary (like her dry food ~ she will eat the cooked chicken and then literally toss the dry food out of her dish). Much like weeding the chaff from the wheat, I think. It is all an ongoing process. So I continue to explore with my photography and haiku. Painting on silk is what I have just started to learn and am sure it will also teach me much about myself. Ever experience these types of feelings? I bet you have. Want to share?
