To the Yellowfish Life

christine sullivan - 30 x 30"

When you slow down, really calm your inner chatter and open your eyes...all of your other senses follow...and you find yourself in the yellowfish zone of life. Here you remember what life was like when you were a kid lying in the recently mown grass, gazing at the clouds of summer while cicadas buzzed in the fields and time stood still - you were filled with the innocent courage and wisdom of life and stood only to blow the seeds off the dandelions and make a wish. 

Well it is still there, waiting for you. Just open the door and stand there a minute. Just stand there and close your eyes against the sun until you hear the bend of the branches in the wind and acknowledge, just for a minute or two, this wonderful world we are privileged to live in. The earth we are privileged to share. And watch as your creative soul expands and your heart fills again with the possibilities you once held dear. 

No matter where your passions lie or if you have yet to find yours  - all it takes is the commitment to stop for a minute and appreciate what is in front of you. And to listen to your heart and follow it. 

I wish you all the best that life offers in the coming year and am confident this is the year you get closer to feeding your own passions. You can do it. Just quiet yourself and listen.
