Stories Are Fluid

Sometimes a story is so moving that your life is forever changed just by hearing it.


If you think this is the same image as yesterday’s, look again (which officially makes yesterday’s image a WIP).


Stories are fluid. You think you know what happened, but then you find out more and your whole perspective changes.

Or maybe you discover the story you heard was wrong and you now have to make things right because you acted on inaccurate information.

Sometimes a story is so moving, so wondrous, that your life is forever changed just by hearing it.

Whatever you think about stories, never underestimate their power.

P.S. I actually created 10 more paintings today, or, more accurately, the first layer of 10 paintings. (The course I am taking stipulated spending only 20 seconds to create each background). I have 5 more days to complete those layers, and they are drying right now. But this old woman and the crows had me in their thrall. I spent a few hours making changes, especially after another crow landed on her other shoulder.

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    1. I imagine an old woman, a crone, who has a special affinity with crones. Others find crows abrasive, both in their loud cawing and their character, but she appreciates their intelligence and asks for their viewpoint on wide and varying topics. For her, they speak softly, and in a way a human can understand. They stand on her shoulders, and she feels as if she has sprouted wings. Sometimes they bring her small, bright objects they have scavanged here and there, and she treasures them. It is her intention to hang them in the garden, which is her sacred space, where they will sparkle like stars among the flowers and foliage.
