I purchased acrylic paint from the internet. And canvases too. I wanted something fun and a little more advanced than crayons. So far, it’s been such a wonder to be a beginner at something. The joy of the act itself. For these two paintings, I followed Bennett’s vision, and we painted together.
Stories start every day. (I made this!)
Nick delivered me dinner tonight with a surprise message. ❤️ U too.
This afternoon, as I finished my second Zoom class of the day, Nick asked, “Isn’t this crazy, you doing this wonder project during all this?” By *all this* I think we all know he means the global pandemic, a serious crisis. The coronavirus.
It is odd. Why this project? Why now? If you look back at why, I sensed a palpating anxiety. But now? It’s like we need daily wonder to just survive. It’s everyone that needs it. We are all grieving an old world, and are unsure of what our future world holds.
This afternoon was a gorgeous evening (the mosquitos aren’t here yet). And I learned two things: Nick is a secret chalk artist. And two, you can fit many balls into a single basketball hoop.
I don’t even have an update today on the COVID-19. I didn’t look.
But I did find wonder in watching my son draw with chalk.
