painting, still in progress, from yesterday's workshop

the best thing about my work life
is that I can try new things & get better

I'm becoming wise ... before my very own eyes. I'm not sure how or why it's happening but I'm finding life to be more and more a delightful surprise. A constant mystery unfolding. I'm trying to be bold, I'm trying to be brave. This courage quote I posted the other day has become my mantra - you can only do your best. Some days kinda suck & then others feel a bit spectacular. I'm learning that most often I can't predict or control either ... try as I might.

I'm surprised by this painting. By it's strength.
Yet part of me is not at all surprised.
I think I'm coming to terms with the mystery that is life.
I hope so.

those who dwell among the beauties & mysteries 
of the earth are never alone or weary of life
