Spring 70th Day 03-11

The long awaited spring break is here …at least in Houston… It’s time for it …you could smell it in the air, feel it in a sun’s warmth on your skin…but mostly, sense it inside of you, in the need for new beginnings and hope…Our spring metamorphosis of monochromatic  and limited life expressions changes, giving birth to full spectrum of green possibilities. We are ready too….. embracing the unknown and exiting new chapters in our book of life…The different stories, waiting to be written, guiding us to the new adventures and discoveries…That’s how our sprit gets renew…tries it again and again …always full of faith in the future. My daughter and I are planning a “little spring painting sessions”…and as much as I would like it to be the work of art…it will be the work of persistence and meticulous  tasks…As you probably guessed we will be painting walls in our house…Nothing that fresh coat of paint can’t erase… There is something magical in the way room changes with a new color…  Last time, when I had my painting fever and became a frequent customer at the local store with painting supplies, I was asked a simple  question …” Do you like to paint?”  the man, mixing all the paints and helping customers was looking at me with a knowing smile…Well…I thought to myself …I guess I like ….then it occurred to me it’s more to it… “It’s like yoga “ I replied, focusing on my inner voice…”Quite similar…sort of meditation…You are performing very limited and familiar set of movements …being in the moment and at the same time witnessing the visual change taking place…new, fresh start…blank page to write, with no written rules or to do list…quite liberating..” The sale person in the painting department looked at me with understanding, nodded his head few times and said…”Yes…Its good for the soul”… and he gave me my gallon of paint, with a mysterious name to it…full of new start and magic, capable of erasing mistakes with simple movement of the brush… I really need to finish painting my living room…so our spring project is much needed…but we don’t have to wait for painting to feel, that we have limitless possibilities ahead of us in every single day and moment…We can use our imaginary brush and start painting our life, using as many colors as we want to…Experimenting with new or exotic one…mixing them and sometimes making horrendous mistakes….as long as we know, there is always room to start over…. from fresh and innocent state… From deep, inside of us… place of forgiveness, patience, hope, faith and belief in second… third…. and even more chances. When the nature conspires and shows us the way, by vibrating to the cyclic rhythm of our planet…we not only feel the happy, tingling life …ready to burst into the symphony of existence but we want to participate in it…. So…my spring vacation will be quite busy with a fresh coats of paint and lots…of cleaning up…but it will also, give a chance to my daughter and I, not only to work together …but maybe… to dream, hope, smile and wonder about the future which hasn’t been written yet….Mostly ….lots of laughing while listening to a good music… It could be…I guess laughing yoga….well…let’s make it painting yoga…I don’t think anyone before came up with that idea..?  It would be so good for my ego….painting yoga….what a concept …and some painting gets done too…All right …seriously…lets paint….

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
