So instead I'm taking a cue from nature. Even after the snow storms and the really cold mornings; despite the frost that blankets the studio roof early in the morning: tiny vibrant leaves and eager colorful buds are making themselves present all over Portland.
What a sage teacher nature is, if we just get quiet enough to listen, feel, see, and enjoy! So without further ado, without big promises or plans for how things will be 'from here on out,' I decided to simply slip back in & show back up.
Today, as I get ready to spend my day painting in the studio, I relax into the inexorable flow of life, and enjoy nature's version of the lesson.
