Asian Garden at Duke
I snapped photo after photo not just for the incredible scenery, but to try to capture that elusive feeling of harmony and peace.
I painted this from one of those photos.
I spent the day yesterday preparing for a dinner party today, C's jam, my friend's arrival tomorrow and art classes all week. Mike left for home - feeling so much better and hopeful. He will have his staples removed Tuesday, and we're hoping he'll be able to set a date for his last surgery.
The house is shined, the porches swept, the clothes ironed, soap crafted, supplies readied, dinner prepared, my mother and son healing.
I am grateful for this moment of peace.
