The mushroom meal was fantastic as always.
The Plate I painted and picked up early (thank you Crocka-doodle Georgina) was a hit and the gentleman who won it couldn't thank me enough. I guess I've started a new tradition.. a plate to donate to each meal. My pleasure. I plan on taking my ceramic painting up a notch.. what can I say? Am I bragging - yeah - perhaps- what ever you do - put all your love into it. I will be creating lovely works of art on ceramics because I'M going to WORK at it, I think about it - color combinations, what if I try this -when I'm not there I think about it.
IT IS HOW you get better at whatever you do - think about it, be passionate!!!
I'll never be called boring - that's for sure. ;D.
Each piece of ceramics I'm still leaning & it will forever be that way, the plate was # 4.
#3 was special.. I want to teach myself how to paint the night sky so I can paint Bears.
I made Storm a cereal/noodle bowl "We are Stardust".
Everyday we become better at what ever we put love into like our Art, a bowl we are painting our children, each other.
If only it was that easy with humans we put/send/hug love.
Sometimes my mind gets stuck and I don't understand it - 'It thinks about what/whom ever the Feathers it wants and it feathering makes me angry.. Breath. I'll be gardening, painting and WHAM there it is. Suddenly I am thinking about something completely different -almost as forced. Where does this come from, are we meant to be thinking of something different? I believe so.
Do you ever 'feel love' from stranger? Someone you just meet, perhaps far away, through e mail? Yes, of course we all do. It's how love & countless relationships begin now all across the world. I believe the internet was created to BRING US ALL together. Some in more intimate ways than others. Many of us disregard every time God sends someone in our lives- we ignore because we are busy, distracted, tired... many reasons.
Invited to OC by a friend I met online almost 20 years ago, a Dr. who likes to write in his spare time (don't forget tennis), how cool is that?! This a.m. I giggled as my Italian friend Dom on Instagram passionately describes his new Jaguar, he feels like Bond- lol, suddenly I think 'frig I've known Dom a long time..' he lives in Italy and has been inviting me for over a decade at least to come visit. He is also a Dr. I seem to have a thing for attracting very intelligent men into my life - bring it on. ;) Intelligent, successful, passionate gentlemen, compassionate about many thing with huge hearts & FUN! Enjoyable men. They make me laugh & smile, it does make me laugh because 'I'm ME', and in many cases quite opposite but it is there is an 'attraction' that's obvious all the same. I'm thinking I am meant to travel & paint. Some of my best friend are very smart men. Amen.
Brains are defiantly appealing to me. lol thankfully.
Only with those who choose to use them daily. ;)
What does God have in store for me? Wait and see.
On the drive to the dinner due to traffic & rain the topic of losing someone in a car accident came up, Storm and I lost someone quite a few years ago now. A lovely young woman taken way too soon imo, still the thought & mention of her name tears welled in both our eyes. Just for a second, long enough. GO enjoy this meal & time with your son.
Does it ever heal? No, not completely.. that's 'that crack where the light/love comes in' that others speak of.. the light is others God send and says: Look.
Or it's those we lost, briefly back to give us a kick in the ass.. gentle mental reminders.
Lost love. Don't dismiss.
I believe people who die & love us can help us, have you ever felt an embrace when your crying on your knees? I have..
That embrace is what lifts us up, takes away our tears and keep us moving forward.
Listen. Pay attention is all I can say, to simply disregard it as a fleeting thought- is a fleeting opportunity for love.
Storm, on the drive to the dinner assured me.. "GO, Your going to have the best time!"
Yep. I believe we will.
NOW, I NEED to paint.. my mind is mixed this morning as you can read, and a few emotions too I'll admit. Nothing a good painting session won't help sort out.
GOOD things coming my way! Better every day!
I FEEL it!
