Flying Girl is Made of Nothing and That is Everything, or Alice Could See Enough

Sometimes, everything in life is just too much.

Too much significance, too much importance, too much weight.

Sometimes it feels a lot better to just remember how much nothing it all is.

Sure, we can live up our word and try to do our best and keep the productivity up, you know, live the busy lives that we all live... but when that gets to be too heavy a burden and the overwhelm happens, maybe it's best to remember that we are all just what we are.

Just as much nothing as everything around us. Made of air. Made of water. Made of sky.

We're just living, like any other animal, like any other human, like the whole world.

Oh... I know. This makes no sense whatsoever.

Or does it make all the sense there is?

Yes, it makes all the sense in the world. The key is staying conscious...don't you think? Somehow in doing that different doors open...sometimes things get done sooner than later..and sometimes even magic happens!

It makes all the sense in the world, and I am happy that you are connecting with what is happening right now, and the nothingness of it all at the same time, as it seems like it is bringing you closer to what we are all made off, this earth.
Your painting is a perfect reminder of that, inbetween a hectic moving lifestyle and a tranquille stillness in everything that we breathe.
Happy Art Every Day Month. :)

It makes sense to me, Rowena.

And it was something I needed to hear today--today, when everything has seemed too much, everything freighted with overwhelming weight.
