Today I began my day by delivering some of these 'whispers' that were featured in the May/June edition of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine to Evanescence Gallery in High River. It is always such a blessing for me to visit Arlene at the gallery - she is such a beautiful soul. And the drive through the rolling hills is so heart-filling. So today has been a busy one, but definitely a pleasant one with great conversation and food and drink, though not quite enough art - I'm glad yesterday was filled with painting. While I drive I tend to do a lot of reflecting...on my challenges and also on the abundance of all that I have been given. It seems funny, but one of my favorite things is to sit and think, to reflect...I was labelled a dreamer when I was attending school and I have to say that must be why I paint, because I can dream my days away. Lately I've given a lot of thought to the future as my eldest daughter is about to graduate and head off to university so it was quite interesting to open the Globe & Mail to read:
"What is your most outrageous dream? What is the one thing you wish for more than anything else? It doesn't have to stay beyond your grasp. You DO have what it takes to make it happen - and now is the perfect time."
