In the moment

Sitting in a comfortable chair, with a cup of tea made with Elderflower blossom which I picked in the fieds. At least from a place not, or less, polluted by many cars passing by. I’m using an vintage teacup to add to the quality of the feel good factor. It’s a challenge to not think of all the things I can do/make (too many ideas) or things I maybe shóuld do (also too many things…)Things I acctually don’t want to do, boring things that have noting to do with painting. But things that keep buzzing in my head. But for a while I can be in the now. There’s the sound of birds chirping, I can hear several species. The unmistakable chiffchaff, who seems to miss a beat. And there’s the rustling of the trees, when I close my eyes I imagine being at the beach, it’s almost the same sound. ‘Me time’, time to muse, to stare in the distance, into nothingness while enjoying the quietness.
