I was lucky enough to be in the Islands over the Thanksgiving holiday. There is so much beauty it startles the senses and warms the heart. I woke up mornings and had to make a painting. I brought some watercolors with me and when I wasn't painting I was looking through my lens and taking photographs. Knowing I had to leave, I wanted badly to take some of it home with me.
Living and loving...creating and enjoying...painting, writing, planting and harvesting...those are the joys that make me want to see the sun come up in the morning...as long as it doesn't happen too early.
