Every morning for the last little while I have been writing my morning pages. It was a suggestion from the book The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron, I still recommend it. I write 2-3 pages by hand of anything that is in my mind, it is a great journal, meditation, and therapist. This morning as I was doing it, I looked up to this happy painting, and it allowed me to pause...
I remember being in Wenatchee with a friend taking a watercolor workshop. I remember carefully working in each petal and adding layer upon layer to enhance the detail. I remember being so focused that 1 petal was all I could see. I remember being lost in the color and detail that time just flew by. Happy, happy memories.
Paraphrasing something I read MY LIVE ISN'T PERFECT, BUT IT IS FULL OF PERFECT MOMENTS.
