Summer Solstice

As we approach the summer solstice, the days are at their longest. The sun begins to set at 10 pm and rises early. The colors in the sky are clear and clean. The farmers have cut, harvested and bailed the hay into huge barrel like bundles and wrapped tightly in green plastic. The smells of fresh cut hay and manure are heavenly. The moon was full last night and bright as a city street lamp. This morning the sunrise woke me at 6 am with a symphony of color! It was a brief glorious moment and was gone as quickly as it came.
Today I marvelled at the fact that I am painting! I have so much to learn, but each day I understand another tiny concept and remember to be patient. One who seeks the truth cannot fail.
