I have to say, I’ve been pretty darn productive lately.
Knowing my usual patterns and accomplishments (or lack thereof), I am impressed.
In the ten days so far in the month of June, I’ve undertaken – and finished – more projects than would normally get done in an entire month.
I’ve kept up with all the usual stuff, like laundry and housework, evenings in the studio and my (several)jobs for pay.
In addition, I planted my garden, mowed the lawn, trimmed the pine tree, pruned the shrubs, cut back the roses, trimmed along the walkway, cleaned out several flower beds and dug post holes to move my clothesline poles. Dug up the poles from their current location. Hauled all the branches, trimmings and weeds away.
Maybe even more stuff I just can’t think of right now.
On top of that, I delivered artwork to a gallery that is opening for the season this week, and helped to plan a little after-hours reception.
On a social level, I attended a funeral, wrote two letters, visited with Aunt Katie and had two meals out with friends!
What’s the deal?
Where is all this energy coming from?
What happened to my usual lethargy?
As I was setting out to take the dogs for their walk today, my camera beeped, letting me know the little storage card was full. To be able to take more photos, I was going to have to make room. No problem. I transfer the photos to my computer pretty regularly, so it was just a matter of deleting them from the camera.
So, as we walked along, I clicked through and deleted images taken over the course of the last several months.
Gray trees in a pale landscape.
Gray trees against gray sky.
This was the world I saw, through the many long months of winter.
I looked up from my task to see sunshine weaving through many layers and shades of green. Blue sky! Brown path! Flowers!
I could feel the energy in all the wild color and brightness surrounding me.
That’s where it’s coming from!
