The Painting: Playing in color as I begin feeling out the direction for a new series. A totally different approach to the canvas and I will have to watch and see what feel comes from it with the next one. I think I will be painting more on this one... so stay tuned.
Life at the Lake: Terry spent the day yesterday mowing and mowing and mowing some more. I did pick two tomatoes from one of the tomato bushes and Vicky gave us some more squash from her garden. I wanted to go out on the lake yesterday afternoon but I had to work.
“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now.”
With that wonderful wedding behind us... and the thought of new beginnings, it has to be attached to thinking about letting go of the past. It did bring you here to today, but it is behind you now and the new day is here. That moment to begin again.
Wayne Dyer "
“Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.”
That one really made me sit back and think. What are we rehearsing for today? What are you waiting for and planning for that you are missing this moment and this day? We all get caught up in planning and plotting, and we often forget to use the time to its best advantage. I always feel that way when I work at the computer forgetting to get up and walk around outside in the beautiful place we live. That is why I was so drawn to wanting to go sailing yesterday afternoon. Terry was too tired from mowing.
Make this day your live performance. Give it your all and share it with those you love.
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”- Matthew 24:35
