Focus (on what's inside)


Last week I took my daughter for an eye exam and as I sat in the office listening to the doctor ask "Better like this, or like this? Clearer on one, or two? Better on 3 or 4 or are they the same?" I thought to myself doctor you are so wise (isn't that just what we all keep asking ourselves). The constant effort to focus and to clarify keeps us asking those questions over and over and at times it can be exhausting. I'm completely immersed in a shift of focus which is why I haven't been here as much lately (i think about being here often but am easily distracted these days). I've been busy over thinking, purging, planning, packing, and painting as well as trying to stay on top of the daily goings on around here and I have to say things I'm a bit bleary eyed. Time seems to be slipping by quickly but I'm rolling with it knowing that soon this big adventure will conclude and I'll be back in my nest....thanks for understanding and happy Friday....

Hi. Wow. Just love this piece.

And I can still remember my first time at the eye doctor - how do they know if it is better like this or this?
