----------- soulful transformation through the stars. -----------

4 May 2011


I was wandering around in that dawn space before the chatter-clutter of others, and peered out at wet-grass green, dulled by a descending mountain mist. Reminded myself to just sit, no need to fill the space with doings. Not an emptiness but a breathing. I let myself crumple into the grey. Bruising and fogged and alive.

I  considered bringing life into my studio again but was hoping sunshine would lend me a hand or at least keep me company. I want the brilliance of the white-washed walls to hurt my eyeballs a little and dare me to splash colour onto something, anything.

I made tea instead, and imagined something opposite and aching and requesting flight.

The first sip of tea is the always the best... you cringe as it burns the back of your throat, knowing you just had the hottest carpe-diem portion.
