At the hemline
Three cheers for small c!
“Just like Mother Nature… we collect what serves our growth. Sun, rain… nutrients from the soil. Then we turn it into something new — our love letters!”
What if we adopted the pace of nature? Emerson reminded us her secret is patience... What are you hurrying trough or pushing past to get to the next thing? What if we learned to be fully engaged in whatever activity was in front of us, instead of going through the motions as we are already thinking about what’s next? What if you gave yourself permission to be fully present as you washed the dishes, swept the floor, or chopped up vegetables for the dish you’re creating for dinner? What if? #WhatIfWednesday 😎
What if you decided “C” was no longer worthy of the stature it had originally been granted? Then maybe, 🤔 “c” would be what it is, whatever we decide it will be. Each of us get to decide for ourselves. That’s the beauty of perspective.
My friend Michael regularly reminds us that all of life’s events are neutral until we label them...
Life happens... what we choose to do with what happens is up to us! 😊
Ha-ha-ha. Yes! Devoting too much scrutiny to the painting, before reading the words of the post, did skew my interpretation. I thought there was a row of baby birds below the section of fence. The stump? There seemed a pair of eyes near the top with other features suggesting a very abstract Henny! And I confused Cal for Tal. On a roll, huh?!
I also read about an “art designer” - mostly paintings but some complete installations. Early in his life, while repainting his kitchen, he accidentally brushed paint across one of his paintings on the wall. (Lack of removal prior to painting was not addressed🤔). He stepped back, examined the result, then chose to paint over the entire painting! Artistic license?
I’ve not painted over our dog or cat today. Perhaps because I’m not painting the walls here? But, as always, I find and enjoy the possibilities you pose for this reader. Probably other readers are more inclined to read/scrutinize the full post before jumping to wild conclusions! 😁

I was wondering how a three-legged basset hound with a halo would factor into today's post... oh, tree trunk! Yes! Yes, obvious now, yes. <cough> I'll go stand over here...
