This moment, right here,
is where i need to be.
Drinking in the lines & curves of the NOW life
which is SO unassuming,
perhaps not even note-worthy.
And yet…in drawing,
i find worth and value
in just BEING.
being focused on here
and not on there.
of the straw-pen
into the milkshake of my life
is like placing the needle
of the record-player
onto the vinyl disc:
i begin to hear the music…
softly at first…
then stronger as the needle traces the lines
round and round my life
AS IT IS
in THIS moment.

Beautiful thoughts Jennifer!

Thank you so much Stew! Hope all is well with you and your family!
What a beautiful way to document the “specialness” of an ordinary day. Thank you for sharing this; you inspire me to try to document my regular days and find the joy or peace in them. So glad I decided to follow your beautiful blog.
Thank you Linda…your kind words mean so much! Thank you for following my blog and taking the time to comment here!
What a lovely description of the tuning-in to the present moment that I wish I did more of …
Thank you Jane! I hope you’ll be able to have more “tuning-in” moments! That’s a wonderful description!!
Lovely words and so true!
Thank you Cathy! Thanks for visiting and commenting!
I have a memoir journal I’ve been working on just getting down little things like school dance memories and tricycle riding and each time I sit to write how often the feeling to draw gets in the way. I really believe at times that writing clears the way to free drawing expression. The cat has no problem living in the moment that’s for sure.
Yes, Mary…I’ve often thought I would love to live a cat’s life! Except that she doesn’t draw…and I do love to draw. 🙂
Lovely words! Love that kitty!
Lovely, Jennifer. The drawing and the words, a perfect combination.
