Running sideways. It’s about the journey, not the destination. Not a day goes by that I don’t need to rimind myself of this because I am constantly running as fast as I can to accomplish more than feels humanly possible. I run from one place to another, one activity to another, I run through my days on constant overdrive. Just last week on my way to work a little boy was on his way to school, running sideways, enjoying is journey, every single step of the way. I want to feel that way. Really, really want to, at least occasionally. The closest I think I get to that feeling is while I’m painting. Sometimes a painting just takes over and almost paints itself, like this one. Not sure why it’s different, but sometimes it’s completely effortless. Every now and then I lose all sense of time, well almost…but real life is always right around the corner. I really want to make a conscious effort to enjoy the moments, run sideways sometimes…hope you get to find the time to run sideways right along with me!
