September 20, 2012 I stop to look at the factory-come-studio building across the street. The various layers of inside-out with its partially open window are a symbolic replica of my life. Some aspects seem clear and concise until I try to look more closely. Then most knowing seems to disappear under my scrutiny. The various compartments and panes separating and holding together with equal and debatable success. Yet, I am charmed by the window – as I am similarly by my life.

With rain and darkness filling most of the last twenty-four hours I opted for visiting today. Baking powder biscuits whipped together, served hot with my mother’s raspberry jam and strong dark coffee wrapped soothingly around great company. The heated tile floors were cozy as our laughter soaked into the far corners next to the unnoticed cobwebs.So nice to have a guest in our home.
Tomorrow, I shall paint. Today I shall be. A pleasant Monday to you and I wish you all much success during the week ahead accompanied by the ability to accept what is.
What did you see through the open window in your life today?
