Today had lots of emotions.
And they, for the most part, were experienced, addressed, and released.
I painted lots, and all of it while on the front porch swing, which was utterly lovely.
(Except for the few times the wind disappeared, and it was just miserably warm for about a minute or two until the wind picked up again out of nowhere…. those were not so utterly lovely…)
So, I learned all about which brushes to use for which brush strokes, which was awesome…
I played with flowers…And I progressed significantly on my casual paint-by-numbers…
Super happy with the success of painting today(!), and very glad to have kept with this goal of mine to paint on Sundays. 😀
I then had to stop somewhat abruptly in the middle of number ten, because I felt that it was time to work on a song that suddenly was becoming very clear in my head as I painted.
So, I went inside, got to work, pulled together pieces I had wanted to use but had almost abandoned from a song yesterday and the day before – song got abandoned, but the good words got used today! – and completed the new song, recording it and all.
It helped a lot with some emotions that have been hammering the past few days, and I am grateful for that especially.
Then I rode my bicycle, stopped to listen to some lovely guitar playing and singing in the park, was invited to join the small trio, joined them, and enjoyed company for the first time in a long while… and not just because they are people, but because they are perilla I genuinely liked and enjoyed having around me…, so that was great.
And the music was, too. 🙂 ❤
I love music, and I especially love good music, and I especially especially love good music being played casually right in front of or next to me.
So, it was wonderful.
Then I found a hidden minuscule park one of the trio had mentioned was near my house, and I enjoyed the Live Oak that its heart and only means of existence.
I think I will go back in the daytime to admire and appreciate some more this week.
Now, I go to sleep, exhausted… exhausted… and it’s 2:05zzz…
I am nervous for the governor’s announcement tomorrow.. I want to continue working from home for a while longer… so, I have been nervous to go to sleep tonight…
Alas, I want to sleep now, so I shall sleep.
Goodnight, World… May we have loveliness tomorrow. ❤
