Good morning! Happy Sunday Morning Coffee to you. As I write this, it’s Saturday morning and I’m eagerly awaiting tomorrow morning, when I can chill with my coffee and relax my brain.
But not today.
Today, I’m in Workshop Mode. And I’m glad. I’ve not painted since October and I’ve got a Painting Jones.
I’ve got it bad.
This workshop should help, not enough, but it should help some.
Today’s workshop is called Painting Your Windhorse. It’s a workshop I created to celebrate beginnings and to honor endings. I designed it so it could be used as a journaling tool…colored pencils in lieu of paints. But paints are what we’re using this day. They’re already packed in the back of my car.
The beginning we will be celebrating is 2017, the ending is…you guessed it…2016.
Lordy, what a year, eh?
And it’s not over yet.
In these times it’s so easy to feel fractured and broken, especially when our world is beginning to look a great deal like the world Clarence the Angel shows George Bailey, when George wishes he was never born in the movie It’s a Wonderful Life; a world filled with greed, misery, fear and distrust.
I think we need to remember what George learned by that experience: that each of our lives is wonderful and precious and how very, very important and needed each of us is.
Despite the world’s shenanigans, it can be a wonderful life, if we open our hearts and be the best people we can possibly be, as we always strive to be better.
It feels good to be kind.
I leave you, now, with a picture of Episode 3 in physical form. These are proofs. I went through the book and it looks so pretty that I’ve activated it and in 3-5 days, it will be available on Amazon.com. Now, onto the next!
And one of the Mountain taken in Yelm where Mr. Al and I went to the movies and dinner for an Anniversary celebration. Loving my iPhone 7!
Have a great week, peeps!!
