An assault of spritzing. That’s the kind of rain we’ve been experiencing. It’s somehow both enjoyable and incredibly annoying. As I was trying to nonchalantly go about the business of being, I saw this gorgeous rainbow spanning the built up horizon. Glorious. The position of the light and the glowing ‘wait’ made for a terrific little composition.
There is a good little message in here, too. Wait. Wait in that moment where you find yourself. Wait and watch the rainbow fade, the light change, the traffic move. Wait and see the people around you.
Lately it’s felt quite heavy here. I wonder how people are able to move with the weight of all the shit they must be carrying with them in their lives. Some days it feels like I’m trying to push up through a blanket of treacle, but not as sweet. But then I catch myself caught up in a beautiful moment… like the one featured above, or seeing the light shine on a curl of Lottie’s hair, or seeing a beautiful piece of artwork, or hearing a song on the radio that stills me, and I think ‘My life is very full.’ It’s full of kindness and beauty.
The thing about making art is that it locks you into a moment. And drawing from what you are experiencing makes you experience it more intensely. Perhaps I should pick up my pens again and reconnect firmly to my present.
