Excitement in the Garden
Nope, I haven't seen a UFO in the garden. But one can hope!
Little story: I usually meditate on the balcony off the bedroom at around 10:30pm or so every night. The balcony faces the huge preserve that we live against. Last year I came to notice a light out in the preserve during the time I was meditating. It was clear out there and it showed up from time to time, not on a set schedule and it never moved. Then once I saw it moving! I strained my brain trying to figure out what it could be, because no way is there anybody out there. We're not "suppose" to go in the preserve, never mind there's no paths, it's pitch black out there at night, there's diamondbacks galore and of course other potential dangers including bear, boar and panther.
Well, this kept happening and I couldn't figure out what it could be and I teased my husband that we have "visitors".
After the summer was over our HOA put a paragraph in the newsletter reminding us that we are not to go in the preserve and that local teens had been found to have DRAGGED A COUCH out there (unbelievable!!!) and made a sort of fort in a clearing!
Wow! That is determination! I can't imagine dragging a cooler out there let alone a couch. So anyway, that is what inspired this little painting on postcard sized heavy watercolor paper with watercolors and ink.
I actually did see a UFO once up north...
