Some days are just ordinary, nothing worth mentioning. But most of our lifetime is made out of these ordinary days. This weekend is the beginning of summer of 2015. Temperature is soaring, thunder storms come almost every day. Sunset is often stunning after rain, when the day is close to its end.
The ordinary weekend was made special with some friends’ visits. Yesterday, my “painting student friend” came over and finished another painting under my instruction. Afterwards, we had dinner at Chipotle with our buy-one-get-one-free coupon. I also finished my re-painted motorcycle helmet “Knowledge is Boob Power”. Today, another friend, the one in the picture, came and we had a crab feast. It was an easy and relaxed afternoon. When we made it to the pool, the storm was just minutes away. The day is still close to perfect. Ordinary, but it made me very content person.
Before, I would want to join the crowd at the nearby beaches in summer, now, I try to make myself focus on my daily life more. I do not forget how vast and interesting the world is, and I know I cannot travel to all parts of the world within my lifetime. However, everybody could have their different ways of traveling. And we all experience a little bit of the world from different aspect, different level every day. When the day pass smoothly, I would like to think about my home. How to improve what I have, and how to make it new. I just noticed that very little thing can be very pleasant and refreshing.
Every day, no matter it is ordinary or not,one always have a mixed feeling of being content, and dissatisfied. I have not been working on my art projects intensively for quite some time. I think people say “life has got in the way.” in a good way or in a bad way? it’s hard to say. I know I don’t have excuse except the fact that I have been lazy. And years could easily pass like this before I am aware of it.
Coming to think about what I treasure the most, about settling down. I think what I demand is becoming less and less. Although I highly doubt if I am endowed with a very strong will and high talent, I do not want to become a purely mediocre person. But thoughts get me nowhere, unless they become a starting point for me to set my sail and cast off towards the next destination.
