Transition AGAIN? A Year of Months: June:Transition

What will the next months bring - the next weeks, the next days, the next minutes?
Despite the drought, June has brought extravagance - in flowers blooming, in generosity from friends, in adjustments to new challenges, in advances in art-making, in gratitude for the natural expression of things.
The dust rises, and settles, and look at the wonders!  Tiger swallowtails visited the larkspur in the rose bed not once but twice when I happened to be there and could record it!  The clematis that looked dead 3 weeks ago responded to watering and loaded up with 4" blossoms.  Roses I thought had succumbed to the cold dry winter blossomed profusely, if a little shorter. Other delights too numerous to count remind me of so many blessings!   Shared dishes, volunteered transport, time carved out for creative work, new paradigms adjusted to and made meaningful for both Bill and me- all expressing this time of the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, and the duality and versatility of Geminis.   Holding all this in my head and heart, June:Transition, the 6th in my series, A Year of Months has emerged. It truly is about transition, and all the promise and the leaving and trust that that  entails.

Coming soon, July, my power month!  A new painting, and another video about the actual process, sequentially, of making a painting (as soon as I finish the voiceover!)
Here's to SUMMER!
