The fierybreathofsunlightheatsupthe house now. The passage from stars to pale glow to daybreak and now the full force of the morning has seemed both gradual and swift. Mother is having a pleasant conversation with some imagined person and pauses once in a while to sip her coffee. She speaks like it is to a kind friend who has stopped by for a visit. Mother slept well for the most part last night but would not go back to bed so we were up in the early morning. After getting washed, dressed and settled with coffee she promptly fell asleep in her chair and again after breakfast. Now she is awake, entertaining thoughts in her head as though they are real and to her they are. I am having to watch her more and more when it comes to taking pills. She has gotten to putting them in her mouth and then spitting them out into her lap. So now we take her pills together, I as coach and she as the swallower. At least she gets them down with the rest of breakfast, which is more liquid than it use to be.
The days have been busy both in the studio area and outside. The new works continue to progress and there is a developing completeness about them. Red leaves now adorn the painting of reflections on water and the color sets a beautiful tone to the work. The blooming tree is at a crossroads and will either be very exciting or deadly; time will tell. The green landscape of trees and rocks is scheduled to be picked up by the gallery this week. It captures the greens of late spring and is flooded with light. Work continues to sell and that is pleasing. I think I will start another work dealing with water and reflections as the departure point. I would like to explore the mystery of reflections as bearers of messages and images to the viewer.
I have been working in the yard and it is good to see how changes open areas and create new vistas. Got some of the grass under control by the fish pond and now I can see into it better from inside the house. The fish have become an enjoyable sight as they swim around and under the lily pads. The cats still stop and watch, then go on their way. I have not seen the deer in a week or so. Now that the fawns are older they may have moved further into the trees. I see signs that they are still around so I am sure they are just hiding in the daytime.
Hope you have some quiet place to rest and sort out your thoughts. That you have found where you can be refreshed and at peace and that your mind has found peace as well. That you are experiencing a time of renewal and a growth that builds you more to the person you want and should be. That you have found a cool stream that satisfies your needs and sings a song that makes your soul dance.
