In charge -- the feeling of knowing you're there

What do I mean?  What a great day I've had today -- powered
 by the connection with you.  Just getting back to blogging
made it seem like anything was possible.  Okay yes within reason.
I decided to do what I've done for a long time -- work on
painting whenever I can.

And I began thinking about the pieces I've begun and need
to finish.  Here's a little 5 x 7 inch painting I'm having fun with.
But every part of today was smoother, more creative, more
logical, and happier -- and I know it's the connection with the
wider painting world -- you.

I'm reading an article on Eudaemonic well-being -- Eudaemonic 
well-being, inequality, and health: Recent findings and future 
directions by Carol D. Ryff. Basically it's about happiness --
a subject that fascinates me.  Apparently blogging and connecting
to the artistic world I love is part of what makes me happy.

Have a doing what you love day.
