Yesterday I was jolted out of my musings by an artist(Seth Apter) I was unfamiliar with. I had received an e-mail about 3 days of workshops with him in the fall. Attending workshops is not something I am apt to do, but I am a regular at this particular store, and have found that the owner there, keeps up with the latest in the mixed media news. The store is a treasure for art/craft supplies.
I was sufficiently motivated, that I dressed and headed out the door in search of a stamp that he had used, and to research his embossing powders. My first stop was about 50-60 miles from my place. Heading out towards Montreal I suddenly realized that on my left in the lanes coming into the city, were not a few dozen but miles of cars bumper to bumper inching their way into the city. Commuters, people who live on the edges of the city trying to get to work,
It was jaw dropping to see so many people patiently making their way west. As far as the eye could see, coming along the major roadways every vehicle one can imagine. I am retired, and know to leave my house after the “rush hour” It was somewhere between 8:30 and 9. I gave thanks right there and then, that I am now in a different phase of “life”. It was very appropriate when I saw this little sign in the Dollar Tree, when I dropped in.
Please dear reader, if you, like I, have the freedom to explore, discover and live a less structured day to day. Say a prayer of appreciation today, thank the Universe for your life as it is now, and include prayers of support and energy for those who live along beside us, coping and dealing with the phases in their lives that is their “moment in time”
