Dark and Quiet
September 22, 2016
Thehouseandoutsideisdarkandquietas the minutes pass and I sit here. I am not able to go back to sleep after the last time Mother got up and I got her back to bed. I can hear the light sounds of her snoring and wish I could also find sleep. The last few days have brought mornings filled with loads of wash and too little sleep. I seem to be the one who is drinking coffee more than usual. Tiredness is interfering with my painting but there is still activity going on so I will keep doing with whatever time I can find.
Mother is up and trying to get her day started. Breakfast is over and she sits looking at the sofa and talking to it with repetitions the meaning of which only she can decipher. Light is softly filtering through the fog and there is a stillness to the landscape.
I have worked out designs for the new paintings of trees that focus the viewer at the base of the tree looking up. The change of perspective, the soaring feeling, I think, will give an energy to the works. I am vacillating between what I want to do with the three panels and how the imagery will manifest itself. I have been working on trees that reflect in the water in circles of branches. Maybe I was just over exposed to the Olympics. I have thought about revisiting the works dealing with Mother’s Alzheimers and I may try to make images of what we are going through now. Maybe I just need some sleep before I commit to a new body of work that is that personal.
Hope you are finding days filled with peace and that your days are filled with meaning. That you see the things that are important to you with clear eyes and a sensitive heart. That those around you find your company enjoyable and helpful. That you can see what matters and what doesn’t and won’t spend time on things that won’t last or feed your soul. That the colors of fall will stir joy in your heart.
