Ironic, isn't it?  Last Blog just over a month ago and already losing it!  Actually, much inner work has been accomplished over the past month.  Something keeps telling me to close my ears to this world and taking things to the extreme as I do, I stayed away from everything I deemed not worthy of my attention.  I've plowed into my painting and produced some not too bad work.  It's not easy to tune out what's happening in the world so we rationalize our perceptions to accommodate what we see around us.  Really, we're so skittish about "ourselves"---what's to think about?  We do what we do----end of story.  No point debating what we should, should not, or cannot do===IT IS DONE!  Why do we think what we do, or say for that matter,  is soooo important?  

From this tiny spot in the universe, can we actually have any idea what's going on????  Hubris to the max.

So, back to the easel - just painting what I paint with the knowledge that somehow it'll be ok---let's leave everything alone, stop judging and be joyous and free.  Happy Independence Day everyone.  hugs. m
