Try as I might, the mix of experiences this past week refuse to be organized into a meaningful story. It all feels like beautiful colours tangled into a day with no breaks in the string, no long pauses and no rest points. New projects, such as getting a gallery up and running, are often like this I think. The past seven days went something like the late ferry sunset building to a perfect moment.
With a couple of thoughts about the morning’s plein air painting time with a fellow painter and friend,
And another thought about the gyroscope jewellery coming in mail from another multi-talented painter and jeweler friend,
and it is over…
As the sun drips into the sea, we turn away preparing for night and see the almost-full moon reaching out to greet us.
In this flow of melded time, knowing one of these moments, someday, will be our last, one is often tempted to think about the strange concept of forever.
What moments this past week have tempted you to think about forever?

Terrill — I’m so glad you asked the question, “What moments this past week have tempted you to think about forever?”
I totally resonated (right down to my core!) with this quote that I read this week:
“It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.” —Excerpt from the book, Lolly Willowes, by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Love the quote Laurie! It is a great fit for today’s post. 🙂
Love Lauries quote too Lots of work a new gallery. It will be amazing
