Rain and the 5th of August

It has been a bit chilly for the last, few days. So before autumn comes to stay for a longer while, I would like to write about my summer memory of rain, which inspired me to paint 'Before the thunder'. I wrote a few weeks ago in my morning pages notebook: 'Revitalizing rain. My dreams will not be dry anymore. Raindrops will clean my soul and bring new inspirations. And I will grow, grow, grow and create'.


Before the thunder

It was the 5th of August a few days ago. Scott wrote beautiful music and created a wonderful video on the 5th of August last year which he simply called  '5th of August'  He created 'The second 5th of August' this year as well. His creativity reminded me about Leah's theme for August which is 'Cycles'. It made me think about cycles in my life. Cycles of creativity, being inspired, feeling good or sad with myself, cycles of faith and doubts, natural cycles or the cycle of time like the 5th of August. I remember the 5th of August last year so well. It was a wet and rainy Sunday, a quiet and cozy day at home. I did not know and expect so many beautiful changes and experiences to happen at that time in my life. The 5th of August passed away this year as well and I am looking forward to what life will bring to me. Another year, another cycle in my life. Love and blessings to you all.


My peace

  12. Aga, both of these pieces are beautiful. They are so peaceful and strong. I could look at them all day. We do go through cycles in our life. It is amazing how much we can learn from them all if we take the time to notice. Have a wonderful weekend.

  13. Aga, thank you so much for sharing your art here as well as Scott's music, which I'm listening to just now!
    I've always loved to walk in the rain and the music just brings up the feeling of my youths melancholy and joy of walks in the rain.
    Your paintings echo that atmosphere, beautiful!

  19. Oh... dear friend, I just needed to read these words today. Along the last few days I´ve been feeling uneasy. And the more unease I felt, the more bad with myself I felt because of my unease... it was like a vicious circle, but last night I started to think that maybe I should embrace that restless mood instead of rejecting it, because this is what my inner work has taught me: to accept life´s cycles. This morning I woke up feeling much better and your words are like a message of the universe. Thanks so much!
