365 Days, Day 275

Those who sage as they age view aging not as a hardship but, rather, as a precious gift filled with promise and replete with possibilities. We may age graciously into simplicity and love, allowing the power from our sense of well-being to permeate the atmosphere around us, or we may vault into older age revved up and in high gear (Sue Patton Thoele)

Paint right into the darkness. While painting in these conditions the mind shifts gears, engaging the unconscious. Unique 'insights' happen in the dark (Alison Mackie)

Gears turning and working in harmony. Co-operation, acceptance, communication are the oils that are necessary for our lives to flow smoothly. Sometimes a little piece of debris may get in the way of the smooth even turning of the cogs; being judgemental of other cogs and the way their lives flow can jam up our smooth ride. Anger and worry cause the cogs to stat rusting.

Looking at life through the eyes of a child, with a sense of wonder and excitement for what each day brings, can clean the rust and keep the cogs oiled. Focus on the now. Have intentions for each day.

My intention for today is working with the flow, not against it.
