As I lay me down to sleep
As I lay me down to sleep I pray The Lord my bones to keep.
Wrap them tight in angels wings
Hear the trumpet how it sings
A tune of love and loss of things
For the brace of a lovers touch
A simple kiss to seal the wish
That sleep…..will come to my side.
Take these burdens, shakes and things.
And wrap them tight in angels wings.
I give you all a soul to steal
keep it gentle for it reveals
all its hopes, thoughts and dreams
in paint and prose of complex things
Good night………good morning……. Good afternoon……..
As I settle into this studio and life I ponder the things around me. And question everything as I’ve always done. Depth of human heart, the mind and souls relationship. Our human existence and relationships to each other. I guess one could say I’m bit melancholy today. I’m surrounded by the “stuff” of my life yet I feel oddly empty. Could be the PD, could be the meds or simply the new year. The studio had it’s first visitors yesterday and there where 3 pieces sold and many more put on reserve which is a good thing right? Maybe I’m suffering from separation anxiety. Who knows.
It’s also possible I simply need to lock myself in the studio and paint I’m not one for the business of art as a matter of fact I dislike it a great deal but tis the way of our world. A kind word and handshake don’t get one very far anymore, sadly…. Anyhow enough of my morning wandering mind. Happy weekend I hope it finds you well.
Much love and light
