It was Monday evening and I was watching a replay of @natgeochannel
Genius: Picasso. It had been one month since I’d made my first painting, and four months since I’d bought the huge easel taking up space in my room. I couldn’t do it. I kept hearing “I can’t make a painting” gnawing away at the back of my head. I didn’t know how to get over it. The Friday before, a resolution had popped into my heart out of the blue, “I am going to make a painting this weekend.” The weekend passed and there was no painting. I had become disheartened, losing hope. I had almost forgotten about it when midway through watching the episode I was inspired to get out of bed and start painting. “I can” took over my mind and suspended all other thoughts for those few hours. The resolution had worked, if only a day off its track.

“The learning process is something you can incite, literally incite, like a riot.” — Audre Lorde — ... looking forward to “inciting” my students, making practice photo transfer packets, packing up LOTS of supplies, tools and more ... leaving tomorrow for 4 days of teaching at Sitka on the Oregon coast 😀

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.”
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream
My good friend @graceandsaviour
gifted me a beautiful book yesterday called ‘A Poem For Every Night Of The Year’. This is today’s poem appropriate for 21 June. It reminded me of this image from a shoot we made together. I am so grateful for kindred souls you can dream with.
