Journal entry from August 11
The meadow beside me is green and lush. A scattering of milkweed is blooming. It is vibrant and orange. During my wander I find a small piece of blue and white pottery. I believe it was part of a beautiful plate where someone once enjoyed their meals. Swallowtail butterflies are fluttering around me. I hear the sounds of frogs, crickets, a hawk and the distant highway. Two herons are in the stream. I've never seen a pair of herons before. I gather tomatoes, cucumbers, holy basil and borage flowers from the garden. The borage flowers were my breakfast. I love having blue flowers be part of my being. . .
As I sit here typing I feel the coolness in the air, it's amazing how fast things can change. When I wrote this journal entry just a few weeks ago it was sunny and warm, now it is chilly and grey.
But I love the changing seasons and the turning of the wheel.
This painting "Summer's Goodbye" is from part of a new series I'm doing of tiny dreamscapes painted on 5x5 panels. Here is the full painting and a close up.
