~Sweet Dreams~

I'm sitting here thinking...'Uggghhh...I can't wait to get to bed!' Instead, for the moment I will sit here and pour out this little rambling from my conscious...I've been in a bit of a 'funk' for the past few days. We've had beautiful...sunny days...and I've only seen grey. There are things I wish I could speak of here....there are people in my life right now that I wish so very badly I could help...but due to circumstances totally beyond my control I sit in silence...I haven't painted since Friday...my house is a complete mess...which coincidently mirrors my state of mind...

Right now my daughter is upstairs singing Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams'(of course, that makes me smile)...fresh out of the tub...and getting into her jammies...My cue to go upstairs,snuggle up, and read with her...a little Anne of Green Gables is on tonight's agenda I think...

Then after I tuck her, and Joe in, I shall go sink into one of my favorite places...my beautiful antique clawfoot bathtub...with a cup of tea...and turn the faucet off and on with my toes while meditating on this unease...searching...for the wisdom in this moment...I know it is hiding here somewhere...right?

Wasn't it Scarlett O'Hara who said,'Tomorrow is another day?'

Love and Peace to you (Sorry for the downer post!)
'Night.

I think the post is lovely. nostalgic and sweet. much like that gorgeous painting!

regarding your comment on my last post, yes! both those dogs are mine :-) the smaller one was a severe neglect case so to see her running around and playing is a wonderful sight :-)

Beautiful Celeste...

This post speaks to so many of us at so many different intervals in time...
we have all been here in this place, and of course, it does not last, the grey and the tiny feeling of helplessness.

I feel it too.

All we can do is embrace one another from afar with our words and our loving wishes...
and hold tight to those that are close to us in body and heart.

And yes, a cup of tea and a vintage clawfoot tub definitely helps soothe the little aches.

I so enviously remember those long evening soaks where one uses her toes to adjust the spigot and the temperature :)

here's my heart hoping today has been a better day ...

much love my dear friend, much love.

I'm not sure how I stumbled across your blog, but just wanted to leave a quick note to say sorry that you're having a tough time.

Also, I assume that that is your art that you feature in your posts? How amazing it must be to just create something that beautiful at will! I have no talent at all in that department, so it's so enchanting to me to picture that you can just sit down and create something like that. I would love to be able to do that, even just once.

Anyway, indeed, tomorrow is another day. Thanks for a great post.

No apologies, mi Amor, this is your space to share what you will... this is your space and you do not always need to be "on"... I love coming here for whatever words and images you may share...

I hope you slept well, and that you dreamt of your daughter's laughter... that's a beautiful sound, no?

(((HUGS))),
Love,
Me
