Life… A poem

my
blood
has
been
replaced
by
watercolors
my
fingers
are
turning
into
paint
brushes
and
colored
pencils
my
head
is
filled
with
words
and
my
arms
are
full
of
books
partially
filled
journals
and
thick
absorbant
paper
that
longs
for
the
touch
of
wet
paint

just
another
day

paint
draw
write
read

repeat

    Me too! Except currently I’m paint, read, write and take pics of street art! What fun we get to have, Gi!!!

    • So true. What fun. Made up of bits and pieces of creative juice, always curious and coming up with new things. Love it. 🙂 And…we have cats, so there is that.

      • Resa says:

        Well, the cats are omni-important! At the risk of sounding Shakespere-ean, What is life without cats? ❤

      • I can’t imagine life without them. How lonely and terrible.

      • Resa says:

        I know! It’s even hard to go away for the night!

      • So true. So very, very true.

        I’m passing on family weekend at the cottage this year. I sit on a Women’s Committee, I have a presentation to make and we only meet quarterly. I need to work on my paintings every day to meet the deadline for submission, and Jeep is 11.5 years old now. How can I leave her (& Johnny who is 10) for 3 days? I’d be stressed the entire time!

      • I understand completely. Deb and I were thinking of going to Vegas to see Queen, with Adam Lampert but how can I leave Em? I can’t. So, believe me…I’m with you. Your committee sounds so interesting and your painting as well. You still haven’t finished telling me cat stories. LOLOL 🙂 I know you’re busy writing, painting and hugging cats, so no worries. Just have fun and kiss the cats for me.

  2. Love the ending. So true.
