Today I should have been painting but I felt restless and indecisive. Past experience has taught me that those feelings don’t make for the best day of painting. So I took an afternoon break to go beach combing and I found a few ‘treasures’ including not one but two pairs of swim goggles. They looked to be well traveled and I’m guessing came from warmer waters, snorkeling is not a big sport around here. I also found a few pretty rocks and seashells.
My most interesting find of the day is nicknamed a ‘whale burp’ although it has nothing to do with whales or burping. It’s a small ball of sea grass, fishing line and misc bits that have been rolled up by the waves into a dense ball. It almost looks like an expensive appetizer at a sushi restaurant or something that could be bought at Pier One as decor.
I think it looks pretty cool and reminds me of how I feel these days…lots of misc ideas, thoughts, feelings and activities all wadded up together.
mishmash: a confused mixture of things
