With the state of the US economy and all that has been going on recently, including hurricane aftermath and cleanup, I am reminded of a quote from the Buddha:
Let us rise up and be thankful,
for if we didn’t learn a lot today,
at least we learned a little,
and if we didn’t learn a little,
at least we didn’t get sick,
and if we got sick,
at least we didn’t die;
so, let us be thankful.
Maybe it's hard for us to be thankful for anything right now. Maybe we are worried, have such anxiety that we aren't sleeping well - if at all. I do hope you can find one small thing to enjoy today, whether it's the last blooming of a flower in your garden or the gorgeous arrangement of clouds in the sky.
No painting today - catch you tomorrow!
