Let It Go

“You did then what you knew how to do. And when you knew better, you did better.” 
Maya Angelou
I love this. I love it because it says ” we are human”; our parents were human, our friends are human, our children are human and we, for the most part, are all trying to do what we think is “right”, but later, because we are human, we realize that maybe what we did wasn’t so “right”. It says: drop the guilt, let it go, learn from it and move on.You are a good person, but you are not divine – you are not perfect. Anyway, just wanted to “pop in” and post this – I find it to be freeing and very positive and constructive. It sort of runs parrallel with the John Wayne quote from before. It’s a shiny new day.

John Wayne

It’s Monday, the beginning of the work week. I love my new job, inspiring and teaching young artists, but, as I said, it’s Monday. I am leaving many things undone here as I get to work by 8, but on the positive side, I have had a full and productive weekend. I painted mostly. As a matter of fact, when I have the time, I plan to post the painting I did yesterday on my blog – there’s a story to tell about it. The big thing I did this weekend was church – Elizabeth and I went to mass – the mission continues. I don’t feel I am a “lost soul” – I have an awesome relationship with God and I am most always spiritually connected, it’s the doctrine that is causing the disconnect.  We’ll see…It’s a journey for me.
Speaking of spiritualism, my dad’s favorite big screen guy was John Wayne – Big John. Elizabeth was searching the internet for quotes for her history class and left behind one she had printed but decided not to use. She has no idea who John Wayne is but for whatever reason, she left this behind on my desk:
“Tomorrow is the most important thing in your life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.”
Thanks Dad.
