All is peaceful and calm.

We need a break. All of us.

I know. Nothing has changed. In fact, it’s getting worse. The United States is now number one. That’s not a good thing. The virus grew by almost 50% in one day in the state. The deaths in the city are growing by leaps and bounds. The governor sounded as stressed as I’ve ever heard him.

That’s enough.

It’s Friday. Time to rest. Time to relax. Time to think. I know, those pastimes are normally left for Sunday. But, time has no meaning. Days pass without anyone realizing it. I sit down to work at noon. Suddenly, the all seeing dog taps me on the leg. It’s 5pm. Time for her evening walk.

I spent some of the time creating this image. It’s quiet. Calming. Peaceful. It wasn’t easy to do. I made more mistakes than usual. That didn’t matter. I had the time. I wanted to play a little. That’s the thing. Time. It’s meaningless.

Stay Safe. Care for others. Enjoy every sandwich.

  1. I see the picture a little differently, sort of the balance between peace and fractured-ness (I made that word up). The way I’m viewing it, on a 2013 13-inch MacBook Air, I see the top part of the picture first, the red and white, which feels fractured when you view it by itself. Then I scroll and the rest of rainbow of colors come into play, and I feel a sense of calming. And as I keep scrolling, there’s the red again at the bottom, with the same feeling as before. But when I look at the whole thing as one – which is of course what you intended – it seems to me like the middle is the centeredness where we all need to focus on getting to, filtering out the noise of the challenges right now and finding inner peace.

    That’s what it means to me. Peace to you. Positivity. Stay safe.

    1. A Mac that old is likely underpowered and has a slow video card. I’m not exactly sure what I meant when I made the picture. If you saw it the way that you did that’s wonderful. Everyone is getting a little bored. Nojo has been watching her old shows on YouTube. She never does that.
