“Clutter and mess show us that life is being lived...Tidiness makes me think of held breath, of suspended animation... Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist's true friend. What people somehow forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here.”

~Anne Lamott

Shelly your little bunch of wildlings reminded me how precious, and important, it is to be so.

We make our own rainbows. We paint them in as many colours as we own, watching in amazement as they fall into each other, the green washing into the blue, the gold reaching into the dark. We are art and artist, artfull, more than we know. Each watercolour afternoon is a whole new palette, calling us, heart-first, into the arc, in layers of touch and of grace, in layers that nestle our hopes as gently as eggs.
