The Sky Will Clear...

"It's not your job to eliminate the clouds; the sky will clear on its own. "

Whenever I feel overwhelmed with life and the expectations of everyday living, like punching in for work, handling dumb questions, and just being there to accommodate  visitors, I try to remember these words once shared with me from a dear friend.

Life is far too precious to wasted feelings of frustration for one second.  Breathe and allow space between the angst..and then step back and be entertained by the clouds, knowing all to well that, yes, the sky will clear!

Creative People

© ScharArt2015

Has it truly been FIVE months since my last post?  Interesting that my post on FaceBook this morning, had this listing of 10 characteristics of  Creative People...

I find it most interesting that the first item on the list is  "easily bored", as it is now that this forlorn and lost creative person decided to return to post on my blog.  It's not that I desire boredom...just lack of inspiration towards my painting and creating art.

A dear artist friend reminded me : "What about all those beautiful daily photographs and stone art you have been doing?"  Yes that is creative,  and meditative, but different.  It  doesn't feed the soul like creating a vision on canvas and seeing it completed.  Not the same kind of food.

There truly are no coincidences....only paths we choose to take.  These past several months my trek was steep and vast at times. I have had five very dear friends go into the "beyond", my dearly loved Kumu Hula and one parent.   I tended to get stuck in the mud for a bit and have struggled to find inspiration.  Death does that.

But I am not the one who died.  Time to cease this day. It is time for me to get lost in the awe  of life itself.  I am breaking out my oils!
