Don’t Wait

It’s a common thing for us to think “I’ll be happy when_______.”, that blank filled in by whatever it is we think will change things; retirement, wealth, a relationship, the end of some struggle. Similarly I hear a lot of people remark on wanting to start a journal on a vacation, and my advice is don’t wait. Making it a daily practice to journal gives us daily moments of quiet, awareness, stillness, and that’s reason enough. In addition, by practicing daily in unremarkable circumstances, we get over the instinct to judge whether or not something deserves entry into our book. Better to get in the habit of simply observing whatever is in front of us, and by so doing let beauty have a chance to surprise us.

Back In The Truck

After two plus weeks on the road teaching shops I’m back in the truck at my usual spot. My tree changed color.

A Fresh Start 

Daughter in first semester of college, and at my end am finding my groove. Working out of the truck the past couple months has been a terrific success, and with everything portable there’s no need ever again for a studio. 

Things are still tough, but my overriding feeling is of gratitude.

Another Day In The Truck 

Truck brunch of Greek orzo salad with extra tomatoes. Awaiting my muse while I let the paint wells soften. Should arrive shortly.
