Today it is Friday, and it is sunny, and I am full of gratitude.

Grateful for motherhood.

Grateful for the dissatisfaction that I am feeling, that will become the impetus for questions, searching, change.

Grateful for my husband, who took time to encourage me and help me find some clarity yesterday.

Grateful that my home and life are intact, that today my family is safe, my loved ones unharmed.

I am grateful for my connection to the larger world.

That connection to other people's lives and stories, like a sonar sense. I make my noise and it reverberates back, fractal, multi-coloured, different than I expected yet so much the same, allowing me to find my place in this world again when I get a little lost.

    Elizabeth, the blue is good ol' titan buff with phthalo blue (green shade) and hansa yellow medium. This particular colour brings me so much pleasure, I have two rooms in my house painted something similar.
