Favorite things

Whenever I walk I love looking up at the sky. There is a quietness that exists in the big blue oasis often scattered with clouds. You would think it would be the same each time, but each day changes. Each location holds something unique to view the colors and textures through; a skyscraper, a bridge, a tree. Looking up and seeing out allows me to feel open.

This week I am grateful for…
Awareness.
Acknowledgement and teamwork.
Old friends and new
Feeling accomplished, a day of home and self care. Of spending quality time with my husband and friend.
New experiences and discoveries, artistic motivation (a new painting started), for learning of the art opportunities in Yonkers to be had.
A busy and driven day and for a directing gig and interesting collaborator.
