Sitting by the window in my room.
At first it struck me how the window grills look like a cage….
But the comforting cup at the corner reminds me that I am not trapped, I am SAFE.
And it is such a blessing to be safe in this moment.
It is such a blessing to have the blue sky to look at.
It is such a blessing to be able to work from home, and drink coffee in my room, and be able to paint the sky and enjoy the sun even from inside.
There is always something to be grateful for.
It will not be easy but it will be worth it.
Random song lyrics that came to me, and random art.
Yet it can sometimes seem really hard to get there.
Thankful for reminders like these.
I sat in front of the images and looked at them for a long time.
Long enough for the kind curator to cautiously approach me and say: “These are abstract images.”
Perhaps she thought I was trying too hard to make sense of them.
And I was… I was trying to make my own meaning out of what I saw.
As we often try to do in life.
