Life is full of surprises.
Much of our time is spent trying to control what happens
and to understand how things work.
When we practice "Don't Know,"
instead of thinking - or hoping-that we have the answers,
we stay alert to each unfolding moment as a unique experience.
In this way we bring a freshness to each moment...
which helps us to stay awake to the magic of life.
That's a clip I read from a book of mine
shortly after sinking in to some serious discomfort with these two ladies in the painting process,
and allowing that discomfort to lead me down a road
totally different from where I expected to go.
And you know what?
I love them more than I ever loved my expectation of the result.
