DAY #297 – DONE AND DONE-ER

#297- DONE AND DONE-ER (1)

I got it done!

That felt good.

I mentioned yesterday feeling miserable about confronting someone politically on some touchy stuff.

It totally threw off my energy and I was filling my brain with all sorts of scenarios…this could now happen…that could now happen…who supports me…who’s against me….

It’s what my mom calls total EGO.

I was aware of it and knew from a zen perspective I needed to quiet my mind.

I put on some peaceful “yoga” music, had a cup of tea, then decided heading outdoors was the best place to find some peace.

I walked through my neighborhood, studying the falling leaves and breathing in the newly chilled air.

I sat on a glider in my back yard enjoying the birds and squirrels when all of a sudden, I noticed something.

The maple seed pods on my table were all standing up. I thought this was the funniest thing I had ever seen.  Did my son do it? No. I sat and watched.  We have so many maple trees that when the wind blows the sky rains seed pods.  I watched them land.  Some fell perfectly aligned with the holes in the table others blew away.

What a tiny phenomenon. I was just so happy to be the observer of such a pretty thing.

I then went to the front yard to take in the beauty of my rose bushes, one last time before the frost takes them.

The last of my Gaillardia too.  I treated myself to the last of my summer garden and then sat down to get to work.

I finished this 25″ x 35″ Day of the Dead watercolor and even had time to start on tomorrow’s painting.

Can you tell what it’s going to be?

No. I’m not telling.

You’ll just have to wait to find out tomorrow!
