I am a bit down due to this crazy painful kidney stone situation.
I am also a Buddhist tonglen practitioner.
The practice involves breathing in negative, and sending out positive.
When I am doing this for others I often use a visual image of sunflowers when I cannot think of an antidote. Today, I am breathing in sunflowers and sending them out to all the people who are in pain — some for me, some for them, but yes, I need it today.
In the middle of this I had a package of new paints and Moleskin Journals arrive from Merriartist — Yay! to new colors! Amazing Mayan Orange. Amazing Mayan Yellow.
The Fuchsite has sparkles in it — the ground stone — and so it won’t be my favorite.
Finally, something you wear on your head — mine is in my hair.
Mmmm. . . disco dancing sparkling combs, and I hated the disco dancing bars but loved the dress. Glamorous and flirty and this is a remnant that I am about to sell on etsy!
A beautiful white bugle bead and rhinestone hair comb.
On my way to surgery this very morning. This keeps me from thinking about it. See you end of the week or month, depending upon how I feel about sitting at the puter!
