We got to witness the glory of Mount Rainier from a distance as well as the pacific coast and the fresh water lakes of the Pacific Northwest, We ate the seafood that is abundant there. We rekindled friendships and made new friends. We enjoyed staying in our friend's "treehouse".
Now home, I am transitioning back into routine. I am called to return to my daily painting practice. I remain passionate to become a better and more accomplished painter. I am excited to see what this fall and winter holds in store. I hope to continue to reach those who appreciate my work. If you are ever so inclined, please share it with those you love. When i share a painting, I share a piece of myself. My love, my beliefs, my feelings.
My hope as we wrap up this summer season is that as we go back inside to darker and shorter days that we find THAT WHICH CALLS OUR NAME. That we continue to find what makes us curious. Brene Brown talks of following our curiosity and that it might just lead us to our passion. She says that Creativity, which is the expression of our originality, helps us stay mindful that what we bring to the world is completely original and cannot be compared. And without comparison, concepts like ahead or behind or best or worst lose their meaning . Sometimes it feels like there is pressure in our modern world to find what makes us passionate. I feel incredibly blessed that my passion landed in my lap again after first finding my passion as a physician, secondly as a parent and thirdly as a painter. I hope our lives inch us closer to that which is our purpose. The world needs us to shine our own individual light boldly and brightly. Shine on ..
