You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair.

Chinese Proverb

I know this is true.

Now I just have to figure out how I can accomplish that.

We watched Alice Through The Looking Glass last night, and I definitely think that Alice was on my mind today.

I was also feeling kind of sad and stressed today.

I took Rosie for a  walk, hoping to walk it off but I couldn’t shake it.  I’m not sure what the feeling was or even where it came from  but I felt so irritated by it. It was almost physical.

I decided to paint it away.

That feeling of



something  more dark

and  more sinister.

I decided to paint it away.


You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.
