oil painting 18 x 24 inches. Title 'Sea Mist'.
Time has simply flown by at great speed this festive season. Yet on looking out to sea today I was aware that so little changes way out on the seas. The way the bright light will fall on the water on an overcast or stormy afternoon. How the eye is drawn to that light again and again and it always is beautiful and it always represents hope.
Each Christmas always brings it's ghosts of Christmas past, for a moment time stands still in the memory and we are taken back to those old Christmases of long ago. It plays back in the mind with such accuracy even those childhood Christmas days too. It can make you feel as if life is also rushing by and you can also feel a great loss for those family and friends who are no longer with us. Feels like all of us are simply passing through this life experience. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing. There is nothing we can do about halting time, we just have to make the most of the ride through life and count our blessings and look to the light whenever the opportunity arises.
Wishing you all my friends a Very Happy New Year!
