Thousands of emotions

well up inside me

throughout the day.

They are released

when I dance.

More to come on this new series and why dandelion or dandelions will be in each piece.(“behaving as the wind behaves.” -T.S. Eliot) Expressionism and symbolism again. I cannot help myself..I think that way–even in every day mundane things. I also have a need to add numbers up to a total..connected to symbolism (numerology). I wonder if there is a term for this..for those like me that cannot help thinking in symbolism?

The experts say Monday is not a good day to post. Monday night may be even worse. I think one should post when in the mood and time allows. Of course, I guess that depends on your reason for posting in the first place.

Last week I listened to far too MUCH news and read all the facebook posts about the same issues. I know the world seems far from perfect..and I cannot fix it. Of course, I do what I can do to help make it a better place for those in my local world and beyond especially through humanitarian causes.

Yet…

Sometimes..I just need to step away from all of it and focus on my simple quiet little world here.

This is such a time, and I am off to a good start on this new week…

Today…Mid – ‘morn (notice I did not say..early ‘morn)

* Garden…

How to make Herbal Mint sun tea:

Garden mint herbs of choice

today mine were pineapple and orange mint.

Fill glass container with water and sprigs of mint.

Place in sun and leave for several hours or more.

Chill or pour over ice and enjoy.

(Note: you can steep it in the refrigerator, but I like the sun tea process. Also the possibilities are endless..I even have chocolate mint in the garden. You can also use tea bags)

Confirmations, magic, & “messages” in the garden..so much more I could share, but do not wish to bore or overwhelm you…

* Kitchen…

All day slowly roasting cherry tomatoes in the oven.. rosemary sprigs, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with Mediterranean sea salt. The aroma throughout the house was divine.

* Late afternoon I headed up to the studio to step into paintings..music on..away from the world..the good and the complexity of it all.
