I find in the wandering my solace, peace and deepest felt understanding of the freedom and beauty I am made to walk in. It is in these aimless and breathing meanderings that my Savior walks closest to my inner being. At least this is where I am most aware of His tending to me. All is quiet except rain drip dropping from the canopy of leaves around me. I hear birdsong and the stir of wind followed by the sound of a heavy unloading of rain from the leaves holding it. The sky is clearing. My soul is clearing and in that my body uncurls and beauty’s lightbulb is turned up. In creating this ROOM in my life to discover my surroundings, my God and myself comes the most robust expression of what gets translated to the canvas. It is studio time now because I have something to express that inspires me and fills me with joy. Find your ROOM in life and fill it out with all of you. Take it in and then paint, write, sing it out! But most importantly prepare for your creative time. It pays off.
