I LOVE to paint.
I LOVE to write.
I LOVE to teach.
Whew—I just had to go ahead and get that off my chest. JOY is one of those things that is simply impossible to keep under wraps 🙂
Yes, I am still in Florida, although I have finished the workshops here (so many fun people I have met, but more on that in another post).
Yes, I have been gone from home for a month and a half. My mini apartment rental expired this morning, I finished the last drops of the creme for my coffee and the gray in my hair (put there by Eddie) is starting to show—all signs that I need to be high tailing it back to Kentucky.
I told myself that I only needed one good reason to stay a little longer so I commenced to lookin’ for a SIGN.
I found a few, which although informative…
Were not necessarily what I was looking for 😉
And then, like a vision in the night—-there it was!!!
ONE GOOD REASON.
I loaded up my stuff and hit the road….for about 6 blocks.
on the beach.
I know this sounds suspiciously like last year’s tantrum when I had to be forcibly pulled from the beach.
There is something about me and the ocean—I think maybe we were twins, separated at birth.
I derive so much peace from the sound and the sight of it, words fail me. I have journaled more, read more, and listened to the quiet more than I have in a long time.
There is a Beauty in all that we do
Poured forth from the cup of life
First a trickle
Then a gush
Awes and Ohs
and a thousand Yeses!
Let us share a cup together
Making certain as we pour
To overflow and spill it
onto every life we touch
You should know this— you are never far from my mind. We are in this life together. I seek things out that inspire me and like a child with a wildflower just picked—can’t wait to bring it to you in hopes that it brings a smile to your face, a warmth to your heart and a knowing that Someone is looking out so very well for you. You are so loved 🙂
