Life. My kids are big fans of the Teen Titans Go cartoon and one of my favorite episodes is when Beast Boy goes back and forth through all the phases of life within seconds. The middle aged phase cracks me up as he turns into a slumped, out of shape balding middle aged guy holding a coffee mug that says #1 Dad and he sighs and just says resignedly, “Life.”

All that to say that life has really been kicking me in the butt lately- so much going on, big important life crucial things and little daily everyday life things and all the mundane things in between. And deadline after deadline. I’m feeling a bit depleted…just in time for all the end of the school year activities, whooo! It’s hard to keep up with it all somedays. And actually I never keep up with it all. But I do my best as we all do.

One of the things I have had to let go of this spring is keeping up with my blogging. Hoping to make my way back. Baby steps. Blogging is way out of fashion these days, but I’ve always done it for myself. It is actually part of my creative process.

I finished this painting a while ago and it has even been shown at a pop up exhibit the beginning of May. I really love the creative process involved in painting my horizons. Meditative and soothing for me. Horizons always feel full of possibilities. I think that’s why as I got older I started having issues with living in the city. When I lived in Chicago I had to go to Lake Michigan to feel that sense of openness. It always felt like a relief.

A glimmer of hope.
