I am down with the flu today, or some kind of bug. It has been a very long time since I felt really unwell and this will make so grateful once I start to feel better! Ick s about all I can say. Got up and fed the dogs and went right back to bed, an I am still here. Down for the count and just have to be kinder to myself right now. Canvases stacked up downstairs...waiting.
I remember when getting, or, worse, not getting, a Valentine's Day card was sooo important. How priorities change! These days I am sooo happy to get out of bed with fewer aches in my joints! It makes me laugh now, looking back. All that angst. But there is no telling a young person about the perspective they will have years later - and there was really no one to tell me, anyway. But here I am. Happy and peaceful...and painting...thank goodness!
I describe myself as a seeker. I try to always be growing and learning, and to be making contributions - to give back. I believe strongly in the 'pay it forward' approach to life. Every smile, every kind act, is a ripple that carries forward and affects others. If nothing else, be kind.
