Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life

Hi, I hope the day has found you well. Strong title yes,? Well if one thinks about it, everyday is the first day of the rest of your life. I’m a firm believer in not limiting ones self. There are things we can’t do. Breath underwater or in outer space. But as the beings that we are we have limitless possibilities in the universe as to what we do with our time on this planet.
Today after being up for the past almost 48 hrs straight I took it pretty easy as you may imagine. I wrote some words which I may or may not share at some points. I worked on the first layers of color for the new coral pieces.

Really just the first layer number one. So many changes ahead for these lovelies. Last night during my adventures in not sleeping. I finished “The last Dance” a story of remembrance and passion, of longing and leaving. Long good byes and last looks as the Tarmac fades away.

Just as you enter the studio directly to your right is this antique mirror and shelve. I have an affinity towards dark wood, things of a more classic nature. The whole built well last forever thing has me hooked. A few closer looks. I had this frame that needed this piece created for it.

For me there is something very magical with this piece, maybe it’s the fact I’ve said goodbye a lot in my life. Far to often for forever, friends, family, loved-ones and lovers.

In my search through the fog of insomnia last night I frantically, desperately looked for tranquility. In my search I found this,

In a previous post I detailed some things in my younger life that were note worthy. I hope you’ve had a chance to check it out otherwise. Well it’s now been 48+ of being awake and I’m tired as hell, I’m going to sleep. Ní ní.

Where ever you are I hope you’re well.

Namaste

  1. the last dance is all that you say and it is a good thing to remember, and feel. to know that you’ve lived and loved and felt things. to know that you are human. to say goodbye can be the most painful thing, and to know it is coming, with the last dance. is even more painful. it seems to last forever and speed by at the same time.
