Suddenly I see


I have been lagging.  Dragging my feet on the floor, keeping my head down and not really taking in all the beauty that surrounds me.  I have hidden my creativity away in desk drawers, and under piles of papers.  My camera bag has seemed to be sewn shut.  

But....not today.  
Driving this morning the sky was so beautiful.  I have not noticed the sky in such a long time, and it is one of my favorite things.  

So I decided that today I was going to dust off the cobwebs and dive into some good old creative fun.  

It began with some painting.

and then I decided to put on my dancing shoes.

I needed to feed my soul.  I needed to get my hands dirty with paint and let loose.  To feel the beauty that surrounds me.  

My heart feels happier, my well doesn't feel as dry, and there is a huge smile on my face.  Life certainly is beautiful.

Methinks it's not coincidence that your cheery little tree was sinking deep roots to drink up moisture and nutrients. Unless we drink beauty into our souls, we just dry out. Well done!

ps - my verification word was "brilish." Sounds like a real word. Maybe we should all save our verification words for a week or two and then either make up definitions or write poems using words like brilish, viviness, wisticaca.
