Running on Empty

One week to go. At this time next Friday I'll either be stressing out trying to finish a painting or I'll be calmly going over my list of things to do for Saturday's event. Right now, I'm burnt out. I actually don't think it's just because I've been on overdrive for so long. I think it's because of so much drama that tends to be in life. Not even my drama necessarily but people who are close to me that seem to be in constant turmoil. Why we allow this in our lives is beyond me. I'm not immune to it, sometimes I'll get wrapped up in something too. But as I approach my 40th spin around the sun I find that I'm longing for something, for a feeling that I can see images of but don't quite know how to explain. I want to just let go and be, to discover who I am, like I haven't done before. To stop constantly trying to "get there" and to finally allow myself to arrive. So for the rest of this year I'm finishing projects so that next year can be started fresh. With new goals and a more relaxed view of this precious life. And just because I love them so, here's a pic of my friends Benny and Nala, (Nala is the bench :-).
