Ready to Live VIII – I

DSC_4275Here I have first accentuated the black ravines and will return to intensify them. Instead of what I intended to do, which was to mix the black in heavily in the ravines with the colors, I did color studies among the rocks themselves.

And it’s all very smoothly done, for the very large part, there are no blotches, lines or creases unless I want there to be, or it was unavoidable. Or in the canvas. Don’t you know.

It was delightful and took a lot of energia. In the best sort of way.

Speaking of delightful, Caravan and Duke Ellington are on. Oh, yeah!

Trouble getting up this morning. I can do better. I have to.

Read up on the Ten Cognitive Distortions and Your Thoughts and Feelings and was out of breath. Whoa. I’m all over the map, as they might say. I’m now up to The Ten Forms of Twisted Thinking and I’m taking a BREAK.

Rested well to get ready for painting and it was good that I did, seeing as how it took so much energy today. So that’s good. Going to write a bit now and then rest again.

Want to write every day again now that I took the weekend off from writing?

Did yoga twice yesterday and hoping for the same today.

In a lot of physical pain so the resting has helped me function. The alters come up and they have heavy pain. They hurt. They don’t mean to carry such awful stuff. I say, I’m sorry. And they stay and we paint and thus and so or rest. I try to eke their stuff out with them and it hurts so much. I can’t imagine having a job where I did this. I rest and we process and I squeeze Lamby and snuggle in but there is not a release but release itself.

Beautiful sunny day.
