While driving to my painting site yesterday, I heard that song from Crowded House on the radio, "Don't Dream It's Over," and for the first time, I listened to the lyrics. The opening lines grabbed me:
"There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup...."
It reminded me of how easy it is to become overwhelmed with less than important details that can really wear us down over time if we're not careful. I see it all the time, and I even let it happen to me for awhile, and I'm just glad I was able to identify it and move in the direction in which I could flourish rather than burnout. That said, I will be posting images soon, at least I should be anyway. I've been painting like crazy, I just need to finish some of them. It's been great.
