In the Swim

The turtles appeared very early. I told them ‘no! it is too early!’ and did my best to ignore them. I continued to paint layer upon layer, thrashing around in my art room like a crazy woman, dancing & singing loudly, welcoming the freedom my art space offers me, where I am able to be me, in all my rawness and humility.

Then I saw they were smiling at me. They didn’t know if they were swimming in the sea or flying in the air, and they were accompanied too.

And it was right. All was right.
