Getting stuck and you’re facing more u-turns. You’re on a treadmill and you feel like you keep making the same mistake or turn or you think you’re not moving. This situation or feeling, I think can best be described by the quotes or prose from Pema Chödrön, and TS Eliot. The hope is that we when we make that loop we’ll have a different perspective.
(The Little Gidding is the last of T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets)
The definition of a u-turn is you’re going along a road and turn, the you go in the opposite direction, it looks like a u shape. You may have missed a turn or forgot to exit or you’ve changed your mind. If you think about it you could keep going on the same loop for awhile.
I was recently traveling and this place allowed u-turns and after getting back home, I realized we often to do the loop of going out a little and coming back to the familiar and going out a little more and coming back to the familiar. The view does change until we try another direction. So I’ve been thinking and painting around the idea of u-turns lately.
A resting moth, hidden in the daylight. I have seen three moths recently that blend into the brick during the day. When a moth shows up there are a lot of interpretations of what they symbolize and stories around them. They have markings so they are easily hidden at first glance. In these images they look like they’re simply resting. It turns out, these moths stayed in the same spot for hours.

How annoying is the phrase, trust the process. I have to say so annoying, and I’ve also said it to others as well!
