Georgia on My Mind
I'm so not Georgia. At this very moment my little babies, who are supposed to be in bed, are yelping and giggleing in intervals. It's really annoying. I don't think there was a sunset tonight, but I wouldn't have seen it even if it wasn't snowing.
The thing is, I am not interested in giving up any of what I have, even the annoying yelps and giggles. I'm sure most mothers would say that. When I do yearn for a little quiet peace, or maybe to paint really big flowers, I remind myself that I get to be here instead. I get to be loved and needed and that feels like something bigger than large scale desert paintings. Maybe someday I will have a little bit of that quiet time. Maybe someday I'll even paint some bones, but right now, I get to be here.
