I will soak up the sea, the friendship, the memories and the salt. I will see what is old and what is new. i will leave behind what I love here . my family and the beauty that is the high desert, the mountains, the fertility and the altitude. I recognize how lucky i am. The last several weeks have been seriously busy. Harvesting amazing things from the garden and preparing for those delicacies to be here in December. Immersed in my medical practice with births , deaths, celebrations and disappointments, i experience the same things in my own personal life. My family too has major things to celebrate and things to grieve. I know this is life and I need to embrace it all.
I have not been in my studio much at all for the last two weeks. I long to get back to painting but I am regenerating, resting, preparing and knowing that my creative time will be there when i am ready to return. I am going to Maine for the fall equinox. As the season transitions, i hope we hold on to the memories of the magic of this past summer and the mystery that is coming with the fall.
I hope that with that mystery comes health, fearlessness, adventure, inspiration and new possibilities for myself and for my friends.
