🌄 Day 241/365
Would like to take this moment and say, “Aaaaaaahhhhhh”. I’ve missed you, colorful sky. The blue and white has been neat, and sometimes the cloud formations were incredible, but my gosh I’m obsessed with this color. Where does it come from? Why is it here? Where does it go? It feels encouraging, somehow. Yesterday I was dealing with a lot of fear and anxiety. I know I read into things (I enjoy it) but it feels like this sky is telling me to relax and trust. Release my worries into the air and know that I’m being heard. The universe knows. I don’t have to shout (or write) about it. In fact, seeing this sky makes me feel lucky. Lucky to be here, lucky to see life the way I do, lucky for my life experiences that help me cut through the nonsense and take things for what they are. It’s all similar circuses, similar monkeys — but I am forever grateful to be dealing with them on this side of the pond (well, more like the middle of the pond) instead of doing so somewhere that crushes my soul and warps my brain. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, one random sunrise, but I’m an artist. It is my right and my duty to read into everything. Art is healing, for both me and you. I’ve simply dedicated my life to studying it.
This sunrise was captured in Kihei, Maui at 6:49am on the 23rd of February, 2023.
