Not always so

It’s the third day being in Patmos, my brushes and canvases are resting unused in my bag. Live has it’s own ways, – not always according to plan and not always so…

The morning time could be my time to paint, but as it turns out, the balcony was to hot and the beautiful, idyllic spot across the cove is to windy. My fighter nature seems to be on vacation and instead of searching for a different spot it is leaving me alone to rest in the lethargy of my teenage nice who sleeps in till 11:00.

Nevertheless I teak in all the beauty I can, driving on a Vespa with my baggage (teenager with a cold and chronic tiredness) across the island. Due to the time difference between the ages we are forced to hike in the middle of the day with a murdering heat in our neck, but get rewarded with the uniqueness of a stunning beach.

For me it is heaven to spend most of the time in the turquoise warm crystal clear water – I am happy to enjoy it and know that the painting will happen.
So for now, for these vacations, the most important thing is to stay in the presents, being happy about the nice company, the interesting conversations and the comfort of having family around.

There is a good and a not so good thing about looking for the right (paying) job. The not so good thing is obvious – money becomes an issue. The good thing is that time is there in abundance to … Continue reading
