...a noisy house

Okay- I have been reading all the books that should inspire the artist, been trying to breath in inpiration looking towards the mountain, at the sunrise and sunset- which was amazing last night by the way, walked out of the movie theater about eight and a thunderstorm had just gone over and left these deep clouds that the setting sun turned orange- the light all around was literally orange and everyone stopped what they were doing to look at it- there was a huge rainbow that looked like it had crashed into the earth on the otherside of town- it was absolutely surreal- then this morning the sky is an amazing blue over the mesa and the sun is casting a soft yellow light through the east windows and giving a warm glow- all inspiring- if not for the two children, the husband, the two dogs, etc- swarming- I think I have lost that window of bliss- when the house is quite, the world is fresh and new and one can sit, curled up on the couch with a warm cup of tea and write- unincumbered- ahhhh, tomorrow is another day- or morning, like Scarlett O'Hara would say!

  1. Julia, I loved seeing that image through your eyes. How beautiful! We live within sight of several mountains, but the biggest has been clouded over for about two weeks with our rain and damp. The silver lining: all the trees and shrubs and flowering things are going great guns!

    Thanks so much for sharing that wonderful image.
