Refuge / Shelter

Have been feeling edgy.  The weather outside has not been good for walking.  My inner weather has not been good for much that usually is a positive part of my daily experience.  The weather of the world is troubling.  

When I woke up this morning, I felt lost.  I felt that I needed help to meet the day.  I asked for help.  Something got me out of bed and into my living room where I looked at my drawing table and knew what to do.  I finished Tiny Mandala #38, started working on Tiny Mandala #39 and then looked around my place of refuge, my shelter from the storm.  Not alone.  Never alone.  In good company.  From time out of mind.


it is in the shelter of each other that the people live

I'm glad you found peace and comfort... and shelter from the storm. Take care there.

Some days, we have to look a bit harder. Glad you found your shelter.

You inspire me. Thank you for this post, for rising and meeting the day, for teaching me to ask for help in doing that on the hard mornings, and for you wisdom in going to your art desk, and giving yourself to creating more art. I love seeing inside your home, it is so alive with the art on the walls, you are definitely not alone there. You have made it a whole world, a community that offers help on hard mornings. I will remember this.
