The Superman of all Roller Coasters

Life can be such a roller coaster, and one that sometimes,
I would personally like to get off of.
If only for a short while, enough time to take a deep breathe
and live in peace and harmony.
If only for a moment, an hour, a day.....

So where do I go when I need a break?
Either outside to sit by my pool and reflect (no pun intended)
or to Paradise, my studio.

At either place I am able to clear my head, close my eyes and picture
the things that make me happy.
Friends, Family, Art & the gentle sounds of water

So when life gets to be too much to handle,
Take a short vacation to your paradise

Trust me, it will renew you and give you the strength to keep going.

Art in the Heart

Do you have those days or weeks where you long to be in your studio creating
But life gets in the way and you cannot possibly fit in art?
Well that is my life right now
And I miss my art!
I'm still getting the house ready to sell
The To Do list is like a rabbit,
it just keeps multiplying.

But what can I do to sooth my creative soul?
Well, I keep a journal with colored pencils handy at
all times for those stolen moments

I think "Art" as I spackle, paint, and pack
I see a color or a shape in my house
And I grab my journal and record it
My mind is constantly going in different directions
So why not make one of those directions about creating

So while I get the house ready
I can at least, be creating art
In my mind.
