Keep calm

Pic: Done by yours truly; the original work is by AdorableHarvey on Etsy

In a day, it is the first and the last thing we see. Placed in our powder room – every morning, as we brush our teeth, and wash the sleep off our faces – it hangs as a reminder that the day is going to be as light as a floating Indian Milkweed. While applying a dollop of moisturizer before retiring to bed, we look at it and remember to smooth our furrowed brows, and grow a gentle smile. With closed eyes, and unsaid words, the painting suggests that we celebrate today; roll the dice, take chances, smell some flowers, eat some ice cream, watch the moon… love, laugh and simply be.
