There is beauty and serenity in the eye of the storm. – jlh
“The Eye-of-the-Storm. Surrounded by the winds and the rain, yet peaceful in its own unworldly way – an unnatural ruddy-cloudy misty-bright kind of way. Whatever comes next, the eye of the storm is a moment of serenity among the challenge – a time for repose and contemplation.”
What happens when so many challenges get thrown our direction? Do we run the other way or face them with strength and resilience? Sometimes life gets so overwhelming that we can no longer function and really know what the right direction is to take. The storm hits, then we wait for the calm waters. The painting above is of my friend Yrma right after all her chemo treatments. Her hair has grown back now that she is in remission. When I spoke to her last she told me she had to have a biopsy on a mole she had on her chest to make sure it wasn’t cancerous. Luckily it came out benign. She then found out that she has to have surgery to remove her gallbladder, they found some kind of lump on it. So tomorrow she is going in for surgery. Through it all she has STILL remained strong. How many things can one person handle?? Hopefully my friend will experience the calm after this. I wish her health, happiness and love throughout her life. Nothing in life is more important than our health!!
I am almost done with my 100 days of painting, I will still continue painting even after the 100 days. Will I do it everyday, who knows? A good habit is hard to break… It feels good to commit to something and follow through! That has been the most challenging obstacle in my life, to commit to any one thing. Now I see how it feels and I love it!
