My studio is in chaos. The house needs to be cleaned. I'm feeling the pressing deadline of my art fair. But it's still summertime. The tomatoes are ripening.
And everything is beautiful.
I hope you are taking some time to just be. To let go of all those obligations and forget about the to-do lists even for just a few moments. Listen to the cicadas and the crickets and the katydids. Watch a butterfly enjoying the flowers. Close your eyes and really smell all the scents around you. Cut grass. Oriental lilies. Roses. Jasmine. Someone's barbecue. Notice. Savor.
