Rainsplattersagainst the skylightsoverpowering the sound of music playing in the living room. Mother is sitting in her chair rearranging things in her mind because the messages say she is supposed to, according to her. I already have picked up the lamp and other things she has placed on the floor as she continues to follow what she is being told in her mind. Not that things are damaged, just rearranged. Her reply to all of this is she is confused and does not know why or what she is doing. Now I have to keep things of danger from her. I am going to screen the fireplace even more so she won’t hurt herself and surround her with things that will not damage her or the house. What bothers me more than anything else is the look on her face when she can’t understand her actions or motivations. To her, she is doing all the right things and just doing what needs to be done. Maybe this morning’s ride will calm her and she will feel more aware.
Art gradually moves forward and surfaces are coming alive with color and images. To me, they seem a bit darker and still have bright hues racing and flowing around the forms. The two tree paintings are becoming more three dimensional and handsome. The large pond piece and the smaller one both have fall leaves on top and submerged in the water. There is a stillness in the pond as though on a day without wind and action. I am much more reflective in a thoughtful way. I have worked on other ideas and so far none have compelled me to push them further. Maybe I am taking some time to think.
I am going to close for now. Mother needs more attention and I have cleaned up some things spilled on the floor.
Hope your days will be filled with things that bring you peace and joy. That the needs of others will be of importance to you and even in cleaning up things you find purpose and a value in the lives of others. Keep well and thankful and rejoice in being alive,
