Overcast With A Hint of Storm

Walk Thru Penn Park
Whittier, CA
It's cold.
Not our usual, beautiful, Southern California day.
About 61 degrees.
Yes, I know that's sissy weather.
But it's cold for us here.
Tomorrow it's supposed to storm.
Also not our usual, beautiful weather.
This weekend plan to simply cuddle up with my hubby, eat, and watch old movies.
After which my hair will look like the flower above.
Ha ha!
Hope you have a beautiful, comfy weekend!

To Thine Own Self Be True

"In Turbulence, Ever Peace"
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

I have been playing with abstracts lately, but do I ever miss faces!
Since many people paint faces, I thought, maybe I should do something else.
I have been working on various things, but I just couldn't resist.
To thine own self be true.
Not done with this yet, but just had to put it up.

I've been thinking a lot about exactly who I am and what I want to accomplish.
Hint; Young women out there, don't run away from this question. If you spend your life avoiding having to deal with this, it will only cause you more pain in all the years you spend running as opposed to spending a little time now to answer this question and then move on.
It's like avoiding doing your taxes. Just the thought of having to stop to do them seems so painful that you spend your time avoiding it. Meanwhile, the months that you are avoiding it while it hangs over your head are so painful that you're really not avoiding the headache anyway. Finally, around April 14th, you realize you have no alternative than to face up to it. You get it done and then you think "you mean I spent all that time going through all that pain avoiding it and now it's done and it really wasn't that bad after all and meanwhile I could have avoided all that pain!"
Yes, that is what it is like to finally stop and commit to finding out who you really are, and what you really want to do.
Younger women who don't quite know what I am talking about, take my word for it.
Older women who have lived this, say "Amen."
'Til later,
Carol B.
