Jo’s Journey (A Somewhat Irreverent Guide to Doing Anything Better): A Lesson in Patience…

After months of dormancy, my orchid recently produced a miracle of sorts…sprouting not just one, but two stalks of blooms!

Meanwhile, given that my free time these past few weeks has all but evaporated, I’m having to remind myself that a little practice on my illustrations is better than nothing.  I might not be producing anything remotely miraculous any time soon, but I believe….

“The short-goal habit is key to larger success and is at the root of human greatness.  Life is think and do, think and do, think and do.  Small steps can be greater than great leaps.”

(Robert Genn)

My small step for today:

  1. ma

    oh beautiful orchids, the real one and the painted one. Parabens!!!

  2. The orchid conflict: they are so wild and wonderful that when you paint them, you can’t believe that they were real.

    • Hi Pam,

      My painting did the blooms little justice, but I learned something in the process (always good.) The best part about the orchid blooms is how long they last. That makes up for the 6 month dormancy period, I guess.

      I hope you are well! I recently got back on Facebook with both a personal and business page. I’ll go and “friend you” so that I can also be in touch with you there.
