Plus two today! Spring-like weather.
I’m feeling off tonight. Actually it started this afternoon at work. I didn’t know what it was and drowned it in chocolate. I’m drained of energy and uneasy. I was watching tv when a tourism Newfoundland commercial came on. It was so relaxing and meditative I went back to the beginning and played it again!
I mentioned it to my Mom that I wasn’t myself. Her guidance: smudge, burn incense, listen to gentle music. So wise she is!
I smudged, am burning sweet grass incense, and have gentle Celtic music playing. I’m feeling better and finished my painting…reminds me of Ireland.
On our way home tonight, waiting for a traffic light to change, I noticed the parliament buildings across the river. Its muted green next to the Museum’s beige…sweet. I took too long composing the shot in my head that by the time I remembered I had a phone capable of capturing the scene, the light changed and I barely had time to get my window down, lean out and take the picture. It’s not quite what I pictured but alas…
I’m telling you, seeing the peace tower and parliament buildings…never gets old. My heart skips a beat every time.
And that marketing genius behind those Newfoundland commercials… deserves an Oscar.
