Artists like to ponder and mull over their thoughts, I guess. Using the left side of the brain is a little bit different than the right side where creativity is expressed. So here I am again reflecting.
Life is a gift. To live each day well. Find the sacred in the ordinary. It is where most of us live if we are not in power positions and or extremely wealthy. Each path is filled with the positive and negative, yin and yang, hills and valleys. Like the boat in the distance in my photo, keep a steady course and eye on the destination point. Ride the waves and enjoy the journey. Know when to find a safe port in the storm. That safe place is always within the self no matter where you are on your journey. You are the one who is in control of your direction. What will you choose today?
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?
