Bau: Waiting

Waiting in the Office

Waiting in the Bedroom

Waiting on the Sofa

I have been spending a lot of time waiting for my Mom to finish her latest novel. Frankly, it is all quite boring since she doesn’t have as much time to take me out for walks.

  1. Thank you for sharing!!… I had a little Jack Russel terrier by the name of Bree (she passed away in 2016) and now I wished I had taken more walks… this situation brings to mind the words of Rose Milligan… 🙂

    Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
    to paint a picture, or write a letter,
    bake a cake, or plant a seed.
    Ponder the difference between want and need.

    Dust if you must, but there is not much time,
    with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
    Music to hear, and books to read,
    friends to cherish and life to lead.

    Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
    with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
    a flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
    this day will not come round again.

    Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
    old age will come and it’s not kind.
    And when you go, and go you must,
    you, yourself, will make more dust!
    (Rose Milligan)

    Until we meet again.. 🙂

    May your troubles be less
    Your blessings be more
    And nothing but happiness
    Come through your door
    (Irish Saying)

    • Oh, I like Rose Milligan’s poem. She shows us what’s really important and she’s got a good sense of humor as well. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. It lightens a day (or evening).
      Sorry about your little Jack Russel. They are so sweet. ❤

    • Oh, when can I go! When can I go! Sounds like a lot of fun and a new furry friend. That’s just what I need right now! Just waiting to see if the airlines will sell me a ticket in this Covid environment. I can wear a mask if I have to and social distancing is no problem…well almost none except when I get really excited and can’t help greeting people and sniffing them. Even strangers, Ellie. Especially strangers. Oh, dear, I don’t think the airlines will let me on a flight now that I think about it. But I can dream about playing with my new furry friend and hanging out on a couch. ❤ xx

      • It’s one of the most difficult parts of making paintings….knowing when to stop. I work on several paintings at the same time…and when I get to a point where I am not sure what to do…i.e. stop or continue – I STOP and move to another painting. In time, the initial painting will tell me when it’s finished…but I need to give it space to for that to happen:). xx

      • Thanks for your reply, Janet. I think our intuition is an important tool. If we force our painting (or writing) not only is it no longer fun but it usually is not all that good. I like that you allow the art work to tell you when it’s finished. xx

  2. Oh how I wish – we know of several people in our Resort who flew over from Canada in a helicopter at great expense, so they could get down here for six months! We’re free here in Florida and I can’t imagine being under such restrictions as they have up north. Stay safe and try to be happy while writing. Can’t wait to hear about your new book and help you promote it, ❤
