Have you ever felt like you're going in circles? Not in a bad way, but in a good way. Revisiting things you enjoyed from the past but lost track of? Like your favorite ice cream cone, or maybe floating in water...just floating. Or maybe you rediscovered how fun it is to ride a bike. Circling back to the joy you had in previous times can be rewarding. It's at least worth a try, don't you think?
So here I am back at my blog, back doing watercolors. Two lost loves I had forgotten about in the rush of busyness and rushing about. It feels good to flex those imagination muscles. To reach back, like a good long stretch and catch the joy of watching the flow of watercolors on the tip of my brush. Creative yoga of the soul.
Is there some little or perhaps larger joy that's slipped through your fingers? Do you need to circle back and explore those lovelies again. Give yourself permission to do so. You are the sum of your experiences, good and bad. Much better to focus on the joyful ones from your past to lead you into future happiness.

That storm, that combination of the real, the imagined and the very paint and canvas is what calls me daily, and I answer as much as I can.....
