Here I am making myself laugh in the middle
of the night. A common phenomenon. No. I'm
not crazy, I'm blessed with an odd sense of humour
and friends and family who are funny too. But
I wanted to post this little watercolour, which
is a work in progress, and of course was struck with
the irony of the term.
Is that it? Our whole lives are works in progress.
Like mine now -- trying to get the teenager in
me to calm down, quit thinking about the great
day and go to sleep. Meanwhile here's a little
watercolour I'm working on. Thanks for helping
me. I went back to working on my larger
painting, little by little. Another life lesson.
That's the way to do it.
Wishing you a getting-on-with-it day!
Life may very well be a secret or a mystery, but the beauty in your work is no secret -- there for all to see. Btw I too can make myself laugh (or cry too, for that matter too, I suppose) -- a propensity or talent I discovered early on as a child-- the ability to send myself, singlehandedly, into gales of laughter-- so perhaps in that respect we're kindred spirits.
Oh Marcia, You are so sweet! Thank you so much. I don't think crying alone is unusual, but we are
very lucky to have the ability to laugh by ourselves. We are definitely kindred spirits -- one of the
supreme pleasures in my life. I love your work, and can't wait to see more of it. Leonardo da Vinci
400.5 million -- Marcia Labelle -- equal value.
Love it. Thinking of you Barbara.
Life is a bumpy road ❤️
Thank you Mary,
It can be a bumpy road. This past year in particular. Glad to
be living where I am, and to have the friends and family I
