I began writing this post at 3:33. Cool.
I heated up a bowl of cream of mushroom soup for lunch. It was prepared the way Mom used to do it (apart from the addition of a can of water) when we were just wee things. I sat at the large feast table by myself and pretty much ruminated the soup away, with thoughts of Mom and her love and care of me.
After that, I spent the afternoon on my kitchen floor, working on a painting of a soldier and his daughter. It should be finished this weekend. Max and I took off for the off leash park and while my lashes froze during that one, I enjoyed getting up and moving after the intensity of my afternoon work-out. Painting is a huge work-out, the way I look at it.
I hesitated to go down to the Gorilla House because of the cold. In the end, I made the trip out of commitment to myself and my friends who also attend every week. It has something to do with the practice…the community…and the brain gym.
All of the driving concepts had to do with Mathematics… Game Theory and Deformation Theory (something to do with P). HUH? Math was a struggle for me in school…a struggle last night as well. In the end, I thought simply of the relationship of a mother to her child. Is that in any way mathematical? Thanks to Rich for picking this one up at auction. I was glad to see you, Angie. Be better. Thanks, Bruce, for the beverage. Congratulations, Jess, on getting those cards done!
