Summer heat is cranking up and we wake just before dawn about 5:30 to begin our watering routine.  The garden is watered every morning and sometimes around dusk depending on the heat of the day.  The Strawberries are delicious..the carrots are sweet, the green beans are more than we can eat... Terry planted them every other week, so we should have those for months ahead.  I even have one lettuce that made the heat, and with it tomatoes, bell peppers, squash and zucchini.   

Changes for the fall will be higher beds to grow in but other than that we are having fun eating from the garden.

I have spoken with several other artists out there that are battling change with me. Our studios have moved and changed and we are struggling to get back into the 'grove' of feeling comfortable painting in the new area.  For me it is all the daily chores and responsibilities that seem to come first and I have to adjust my priorities. GOD has to be first and then closer to the top of the list will be my art. 

We use to sail in the summer. We have not in a few years. I miss the gentle lull on the water and the moments of adrenalin rush when the wind picks up and the sails fill and the boat skims across the top of the water. While we have some control, most of it is the wind, God's breath upon us.  We have to navigate the waters with the winds provided and many times we are caught in the 'still' of no wind on a solid surface of water...just waiting, waiting for the change and the wind to pick up. 

Perhaps not having the studio 'right' is being in the still water... I should be resting and centering on God right now and know in my heart that the wind will fill my sails soon. 

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Ephesians 5:8
