SNOW in Dallas  March 21, 2010

The Painting: Just a close up of the one I am still working on. I was sick so no painting.

The Thought:    The past 36 hours have not been the best, but definitely not the worst either. I hope to be back in the studio today boxing and painting.

While in bed, I did read more in the book I mentioned and one of the thoughts I have been working over is the difference between an emotion in your body and an actual thought in your body when you are quietly sitting emptying your thoughts.  Must be why they say some folks act from the heart with out a thought and then there are those that think everything through at least a hundred times before they take action.

If you are sitting quietly and surrendering to the simplicity of no active thoughts, how do you feel an emotion running through you? I am still working on this.  Have you figured it out yet?


“But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”- Jeremiah 17:7-8

She's beautiful, Laurie! I love her expression and wonder what she's thinking. Hope you are better today and back in your studio. The verse here is one of my favorites. Thank you.
