i needed 

this post.



I thought . . .

it was Friday.


Today? I thought

it was August...

I try to focus and

relish in July and

red berries, and

listen to birds, and

a chorus of cicadas,

and no harbor  ill-

animosity. Soon a

Sun sets. Enjoy a

cam dark sky night.


i say that to me, and

my Family and those

i Care ` bout and Love.

` , ' Be calm  - Refreshed.

` * ' it be the - Redeem a

Self Time this - Great Eve.

` , ' i soon go conk and go

hop in a ` haystack  - calm

For someone as art-challenged as me, painting seems "really work" and anything but lazy.  I guess it's a matter of how "work" gets defined.  Your watercolor is glorious.  I like the alliterative "p" and the echoed long "a" in the last line--they help carry the sense of "ablaze."

I'm not sure why but this post gave me a chuckle... I envy you your impulse to paint with palette ablaze. ;-D

I laughed, too! Sometimes even artists need to be a bit July-lazy!
