Making Peace with the Evil Eye
After working on a project for a lot of this past year, I found out it isn’t going forward yesterday. Wow. Ouch. You kidding me? Unfair. Unjust. Deep. It’s so easy to get stuck in a victim mindset. Sometimes it’s the oddest things that remind me to just deal with the moment and let it go afterwards, and yesterday it was a relative’s cat. This old cat is alive to whatever new possibilities present themselves to it…whether it’s a new lap, moved furniture, moving feather…and never seems to withhold enjoyment from herself while fuming over why the kitty litter was moved for the 1000th time & other such humanoid injustices placed upon her. Yep, I’m moving the cat carvings at the gallery into direct view of my workbench. So far, I notice I’m getting very very sleeeeepy. I like that better than being resentful.
