- words shouldn’t ‘say’, they should ‘do’. paintings too. this does.
what kind of flowers?
imagine this woman, she paints. she paints a sunny Sun, all yellow
and bright. that’s a lot of appeal, big and yellow and bright.
Sun says Sun’s tale. she is doing what she was asked to do.
generous, that’s a word we use. more than a curiosity.
then she paints color. real color. no wait, they’re flowers.
I’m not so interested now. I am something else.
I am colored Light. I arrive, who I’m supposed to be.
and now I know, generosity. these flowers,
these best I render back to you. like a mirror. because
that’s the kind of flowers these are
part two of two
if you don’t have to be some certain-flavor-of-smart
then you’re free to see the simplicity of generosity.
painting: Bridgette Tales, #100DayProject: Watercolors-Week 4
I love what Bridgette does with paint. there is more than a brush.
used with her kind and generous permission. mine is gratitude.
please click to expand, a couple times. it’s big!
as the Dalai Lama might say, so simple and pure you might mistake it for a pebble in your shoe.

I can’t believe my little painting inspired such beautiful words and thoughts. You humble me. ” I am colored Light”—this is what I want to be. The colors of all things. Shaping the world around me. Simply lovely.
believe it : )
