Yesterday I took an old painting I didn't like very much and turned it on its side and painted over it! It was quite fun to have the original painting add color and texture from underneath the new paint. The red flower sticking up at the left was in the original. Too bad the color is a bit washed out in the photo. In any case, I had fun painting it.
I am a writer, speaker, spiritual director and life coach, and also a passionate painter and lover of the natural world. This blog holds both present-day observations of my life and pieces of the larger story of my journey from Episcopal priest to "free-lance human being". It's a midlife story of self-discovery and freedom, a "coming of age at 55" story, an ecclesiastical story through 24 years of being ordained and out the other side, a theological and spiritual story of an unexpected, evolving faith apart from religious beliefs, finding myself more grateful and having more fun with the ongoing adventure of being alive and being myself.
