Setting My World Right Again



We couldn't go anywhere for the holiday weekend because we had hay down in the field. The wind had blown my first raking of the hay all over the field and I re-raked it again yesterday morning. Sweet Farmer baled until 1:00 a.m. and the rest of the night was a bust as neither of us could sleep. He was either snoring, sneezing or flopping around like a fish - and I flopped right along with him. Long, Long night. It reminded me of when I cared for a sick baby eons ago.


I don't bounce back so quickly from those sleepless nights anymore.


Along with the work I absolutely had to do and no more, I did manage to paint a whimsical little painting with my new Golden fluid acrylics and I must say the pleasure of that has certainly lifted my spirits.


I realize a good night's sleep will cure most of my ills.

I realize that I can nourish myself with no more than a few new ounces of paint.

I realize that my spirits can be lifted in a matter of hours and a little play-time.

I realize I'm very fortunate because it takes so little to set my world right again.

I really liked this and when I saw it show up on the reader, was surprised and wondered who did it...lol!

sorry to hear about the hay and the fish sleep...yes, know that well too, and as you say, a good night's sleep will surely cure you.

this painting is so fun, you have almost inspired me to pick up a brush!

I love the colors, and I love the words "Trust in your own path." I can see the Modigliani influence. You've said he's a favorite, yes?
