It was a gorgeous day today -- the kind
you want to record and keep for all time.
North of the city it's a winter wonderland,
but warm temperatures are predicted
for next week.
I wanted to post even though time was
limited, so actually made the 20 minutes
work by using a drawing I'd done a few
years back and popping a watercolour wash
over it. I'm sure it could use longer, and
I may do more another day.
I love her pose. She was a superb model,
but grew up and got too busy with her work.
Her thoughtful posture, and contemplation
holding a letter, made me think of meditation.
I was feeling sad today, news of a relative's
illness, and a friend's work situation. Then
I remembered how great I felt when I was
meditating every day to support a friend in
California with a meditation challenge.
Ten minutes later the world changed, just
from the act of breathing and listening to
a great guided mediation. Not bad, plus
I was astounded that 10 minutes passed so
quickly. Have a great weekend.
Have a having-a-deep-thought day.
