Sometimes I’m not the most present person. I have a job, and kids, and housework and another job. There are phone messages and emails, bills and business. Too often I find myself saying, “In a minute.” or “Maybe next time.”
Sometimes I forget how to slow down. No, STOP. And listen.
Or sit in the yard, watching a cat sleep.
Or share a dessert.
Or have an impromptu Gaga Dance Party.
And then go back to painting. Inspired.
