Fish and Water
June 14, 2016
Thefisharefed and water was added to the pond and the morning that promised sun is now dark and misting rain. Mother had a good breakfast and now naps between sips of coffee as the wash machine and dryer perform a percussion hip hop session while the strains of Grieg try to be heard as well. Mother slept well for the most part and did not seem to find my interruptions to get her up for the bathroom visits too troublesome and I was able to get back to sleep. The new schedule of waking up several times a night has come to feel normal and the problems we were having are no longer occurring. More food has to be given in spoonfuls as she is unable to hold a spoon well or know how to use it. Days now bring surprises of things she no longer knows how or is able to do by herself. She still laughs and that makes the world better and easier to deal with.
The art is going great and I am very happy with the outcomes. The large pond with its great spiral of fall leaves continues to invoke magic as layer after layer is added. The play of not knowing if the viewer is seeing from below the water or above it is enjoyable. Light dances and colors blend and dance with each other as the pond fills with images that captivate and make me smile. The last coats of paint are being added to the trees in bloom and all the different paths it took to get to completion are well worth it. There is a freshness to the work as well as colors that just lift the spirit when you see it. I have the panels for the next works ready and should begin as soon as time allows. I have been working on ideas that further explore the pond and a hillside covered in foxgloves that is just beyond the window of the house. I can feel myself desiring to paint more and explore ideas that fill my mind.
Hope you are finding the images that bring you fulfillment and make your heart sing. That you can find joy in life and helping others. That you can see the value in the people and world around you. That you will see interruptions as moments to pause and see what is around you and it will refresh your heart and soul. That you will always find time for others and the great blessing of helping others.
Take extra good care not to grow weary in doing good.
