ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY – Digital


I decided to take a different approach to the digital topic.
Since I’m constantly immersed in the digital world of computers and electronics, I decided to opt for defining digital as relating to digits…fingers… Ahhhh… the reality of touch.

According to several dictionaries:
Defintion 1. Of, relating to, or resembling a digit, especially a finger.

SOLACE

The day closes in around her.
Licking her wounds,
she glances from side to side, half expecting to see a sign.
Glancing back down, she rubs her cool hands together
and considers what she should do next.
Pushing aside the essentials that she knows won’t disappear,
she concentrates on everything else.
Drawing, writing, scribbling, typing,
eyes closed and soul half open,
she wanders through thoughts and images like long tangents
made of clay.
The farther out she ventures, the more she finds.
Her heart leaps when she notices the time and she returns to solid ground.
A solitary tear collects in the corner of her eye
but she holds it back
knowing that there’s always tomorrow
and that nighttime has its solace.

solace

  1. Comfort in sorrow, misfortune, or distress; consolation.
  2. A source of comfort or consolation.

Tuesday skies

Back to work after a quite wonderful long weekend. I am ready for Friday and ready to camp…I know, a bit too soon to be thinking of that. But not ready for another week of work. Ugh. At least lots of sun still left by the time I get out of work at 4:30. Redemption.

Sky changes
the clouds moving quickly
past my vision.
So easy to accept
that.

Sunshine

So it is a gorgeous day out. I woke up at 8:00 this morning! Yes, I was extremely tired and was in bed by about 11:30 last night. On a Friday. It’s unheard of, but it sure felt good. Woke up to sun sun sun and it is nice and warm out. Quite a yummy day. Why do we try to hold on so tightly to the good things in life, which only results in altering those things? I know I’m not alone in doing this, though I envy the people who are experts at letting go. All I can do is keep striving for that I guess. So, my goal for the day – let go. I am planning on getting outside and enjoying this weather…hopefully will get out for a little hike.

The sunlight invaded my escape this morning.
I tried to ignore it all in deep REM but I welcome the invasion now.
Looking out at the green world filtered in warm light I am ready to face the challenges.
For today anyway.
Luscious day with love.
