Yet Another Video

It's been a while since I posted and I am not too happy about that - but once my life ( i.e. routine) gets disrupted I have the hardest time getting back on track. It is coming though - I am looking forward to daily painting and posting once again starting in September. (or nearly daily posting, for sure daily painting).

My two daughters and grandson are leaving me - round two of the empty nest syndrome! The youngest is back in Ohio already to go to graduate school and  start a career change. The other daughter is moving to Oklahoma with my (only) grandson and her Marine officer husband - and then who knows where after that. I can only hope they will come back to Camp Pendelton and be near me once again.

I will miss them tremendously - but their departure will afford me the opportunity to focus completely on my art again - with few distractions. That is a good and bad thing - I love my "distractions"  and enjoy being with them, but I also love my art-making and enjoy doing that too.

I bumped into this video - found it on another blog called The Abundant Artist - and it just gave me chills. I hope you enjoy it too. It is the poem "Farewell" put to music.  Enjoy!
