She waits in anticipation. Just like me, waiting till night when both girls are deep in slumber and I can steal up to the loft, two steps at a time, to paint. Waiting has never been my strong suit. When I want something, I want it right now. I hate surprises, well I love them if I don’t know about the possibility of them.
Kind of my life’s lesson, so far, has revolved around waiting.
I had to wait for the right husband, even going as far as trying out a wrong one first.
I had to wait for my babies, trying for five years, one devastating month at a time.
And, I had to wait for inspiration to paint until I turned forty and suddenly the light went on.
Lately, I have had to wait to paint. Trying my best to not be actively waiting but instead actively in the moment, hanging out with my two girls and friends, having coffee, gardening, spring cleaning . Perhaps, even filling the well a little.
So now we know what I am waiting for, but what is she waiting for?
