I am always amazed by regular and almost geometric patterns made by nature. Like ripples blown by the wind on a sand dune. Puck marks left in the mud in the garden by heavy rain. The grain in a freshly cut piece of wood. The wiskers of a cat. I am also fascinated by the rythms of nature. Like the cycles of the moon. The change of seasons every three months. Pink sunrises in the morning in summer and early blue sunset at night in winter. The number of seconds between two lightnings during a storm. Patterns and rythms... Ups and downs. Bursts of energy then complete lack of it. Creative periods and moments of total imagination paralysis. We do have our patterns and rythms too and we have acknowledge them to understand their happening. Curves of life. Ups and downs... Biorythms...I read about them in a big book when I was pretty young and it just blew my mind. We too have high and low tides. Each year, once the big hype of Christmas and the holiday season is over, I have a tough time with the first weeks of January. I get stucked in a slow-pace-twilight-zone mood. But I just stop and listen to my heart...And I know that the rythm will pick up again... Don't panick when you feel a little bit off. Just listen to your heart and hear its rythm... I have had a grrrrreat week so far, finally woke up from my post Christmas-rush lethargy and am feeling totally recharged! Ready for anything to happen this year! I finished this little Valentine Fairy painting today and it is available on eBay. I also listed it in my Etsy store, just in case you want to get it now. Isn't she the cutest?
