We've arrived at our final stay in the Keys. We really would've loved to stay longer but it's much busier this year in comparison to last February. Plus, or final stay has an unexpected guest - for nine days - in our small space.
There are so many things that non-rvers don't think about - and we have a few extra things because of our strange cats, and my art.
In all reality, it's hard to share your space with anyone. And when it's a small space, it is even more difficult.
But, we'll do our best to make the best of it.
Just a note to anyone who wants to go visit a friend or family, check with them before making plans. It will ease some of the stress that could result.
Since my last post, we had a wonderful time down at Key West again (a week ago today). We enjoyed live music (which both of us have missed very much) and we even got to dance. Thankfully, we made it out of what was definitely a COVID cesspool without getting sick.
I've been working more, the weather our first two days in Marathon were very cold but since then, it has warmed up enough to work outside. Which means a big canvas that I've been wanting to work on was finally pulled out.
Which gets a lot of attention from the neighbors.
Typically, it'll lead to some sales and commissions. Jordan was walking down to the water yesterday and overheard a group talking. He said he heard them say "have you seen that artist Jessica Tookey over there?"
We've been putting a painting outside every day. Today though, it's raining. Then, we'll likely be taking our visitor to Key West.
We will see what the day holds.
I'm feeling prompted to share a message I put in my FB group, "Unlock Your Dream Life," yesterday...
This morning, during my meditation, the word COLOR filled my mind. If you are completely color blind, I send you love... this conversation will not fully connect for you but still has bearing for you, please bear with me.
Science has proven that color is merely a result of light. A red shirt is not actually red, it is the light reflected from the object that creates what you see. To emphasize this, think about Grass. We know that healthy grass is green... but, as the light changes the color of that grass changes... correct? We know, at night, that the grass will be green again when the sun comes up... but, what we see in the absence of light is definitely not green.
Yet, we'll always answer that grass is green.
Because what we see in the light is our truth.
The light that reflects is the truth.
It creates our reality.
We know that the color will return when the light returns, even though we can't see it in the moment of darkness.
We trust this.
Trust that there's more beyond what we can currently see.
So, question 1:
what possibilities have you been denying simply because you can't see it?
A color blind child learns that the grass is green and believes it because it is what they've been told. But in truth, they don't see what fully functional eyes see... but they believe it.
So here's the FLIP SIDE to question 1:
what are YOU believing is truth simply because you've been told that it is what it is?
Where have you let someone else's truth define your reality?
You don't have to share your answers here but please take time to consider that maybe....
There is so much more for you to discover.
I am filled with so much love for each and every one of you. Even those of you I have yet to meet in this human existence. I thank you for being you. I love you. You truly are a beautiful being of love and LIGHT.
IT IS TIME TO REFLECT WHAT IS FOR THE GREATEST GOOD.
I learned, from Melissa Walsh, a way I love beginning my morning (before getting out of bed) I ask,
"Where would you have me go, what would you have me do, what would you have me say and with whom?"
The beautiful things that come from being open to All That Is, God, Source, The Holy Spirit, Gaia, The Universe... whatever you want to call the source energy that is in each of us, is absolutely - breathtakingly - wonderful.
All you have to do is believe, trust, and live completely in the light.
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
