There is a Place

There is a place that I go whenever I paint. Within this place I am complete, fulfilled and at peace. Even as I am wrangling paint. Even as I struggle to understand what needs to be done there is an effortlessness because whatever I do, does not do much and if I do wrong, I am forgiven.

This place which I go I have put down roots there and can return there whenever I remember who I am.

As I see myself, God sees me also and we sit together for a while and admire our work.

The River

As glacial droplet falls with glee,

another drop first tastes the sea.

All the waters in between,

are memories of what will be.
