I believe this is the last week of Summer of Color, and I must say that I am relieved. I have had so much fun painting and playing along. I am thankful that I have opened myself up to new, and made so many pieces that I would have never made, but I am full, and need to welcome fall with rested arms, and focus on my girls.
All the writing here, comes from Oh, The Places You'll Go! Dr. Suess. This book has been my favorite since Kelsey was very small. I always knew she needed more guidance and this book always seemed to fit. Many years later, and at nearly 11 years old, her struggles continue and grow heavy. Last night, this book seemed so appropriate, and I am hoping we can sit together and read it again. I am at a loss for how to walk her through life. This is nothing new, but it weighs me down, and our hearts, together, are so heavy at times.
I worked a little different this week. I found a site about Fearless Painting. Have you heard of this? I must find her blog again and share. I read a bit and watched a little video, and decided to paint fearlessly, paint like a child. This is where it took me, and I am so pleased.
I am looking forward to fall. Perhaps a little time to me, getting back into some photography, and more learning, and lots more running! ...see those tired swollen poor feet? I did some serious interval sprints, and it's hot (certainly you know this) and running and heat make my feet look like pregnant feet. Poor feet!
