Days Like This....



Have you ever had "one of those days"? When we hear these words we automatically think of a lousy day where everything and anything seems to go wrong...right? In my world, "one of these days" is a day like today where everything is perfect....it couldn't possibly get better.  First the sun is shining and in a Canadian winter this is good news. A day without cloud, the snow is crunchy crisp and the squirrels they are a scurrying! A "day like this" is where my soul is inline with all that is creative. A day where inspiration, passion and creativity join forces.  A day where mucking about in the studio is fun.  Not always do inspirational days need to develop into actual works of art. No. Often times simply to muck about is all I need to replenish, rejuvenate and re-look at my art.  Today is "one of these days"!  A day filled with joy for all the possibilities in the tiny moments. Moments to be savoured and captured on grungeboard.  Gotta love grungeboard!!! To add to my bliss, I could smell wafts of chocolate cinnamon float through the air.   I savoured the smooth melting Lindor in my mouth. The deep raspy sounds of Van Morrison presented lyrics to channel my thoughts. My five senses communed in utter bliss.

"Days Like This" when everything falls into place.  "Days Like This" where time does not exist.  "Days Like This"  where together, paint and brush glide effortlessly. "Days Like This" that provide no questions, no answers, but merely days that just are.

Ya gotta love "Days Like This".......they are what life is all about I think.







When it's not always raining there'll be days like this
When there's no one complaining there'll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

When you don't need to worry there'll be days like this
When no one's in a hurry there'll be days like this
When you don't get betrayed by that old Judas kiss
Oh my mama told me there'll be days like this

When you don't need an answer there'll be days like this
When you don't meet a chancer there'll be days like this
When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit
Then I must remember there'll be days like this

When everyone is up front and they're not playing tricks
When you don't have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
When it's nobody's business the way that you wanna live
I just have to remember there'll be days like this

When no one steps on my dreams there'll be days like this
When people understand what I mean there'll be days like this
When you ring out the changes of how everything is
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
(Music & Lyrics Van Morrison)

  3. I like your piece of art here and your post. Ah, for days like that! I had more of them when my husband was in the navy and not at home. I really need alone time to have a day as you describe and he is now home 24-7. I am so glad you had your day. I wish you many more days like this.
