stormy weather

I need some rain. I really need it to pour tomorrow, to wake up with water sheeting down my windoes. It’s too dry. I know it’s not healthy to get stressed about the weather.

Today I want to write about the rain, as though it is a kind of invocation, a rain dance.

My doctor is from India and is trained in Ayurveda. He is very good at a party trick I call ‘guess what horrendous foods I’ve been eating from my alarming symptoms’. He’s like Rainman but for digestive complaints and rashes. He’s my guru. He says I hate the dry weather and wind because I am the dry wind…Vata. I should eat warm, cooked, wet foods. mmmm….wet foods… no crackers, no nuts, no crisps… sad, really, but it’s lucky I’m fond of dahl for dinner and porridge for breakfast.

a lover of rain;someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.

I loved painting clouds and stormy scenes back in the day. I got really abstract at the end but I do love painting the real thing. I just wasted an hour looking for old photos of my artwork. sigh. Today, for the first time in a long time, I miss painting.

One of the many works I made while at the Dream Job. For 7 years I made artwork for interior design projects. Yes, this is as big as it looks. For shipping, it was deframed and rolled in that huge tube on the table in the foreground.

love this idea from @heyamberrae

I feellike getting and going to see a too-loud band. I also feel like being 18 again. I am buzzing with energy.

I never speak to a call centre again. Ever. I need to be quiet.

I forgive…myself for all the stupid things I’ve said and done. I need some success. I need to feel like I’m moving forward in my work.

I celebratethe fact that it’s Friday and I survived another week. Dramatic. I celebrate My family tonight with a special meal.

I release...the grip I have on time and place…and the need to be perfect.

I trustthe process.

Happy Weekend. I hope you get what you need and a bit of what you want.
