        I notice you had forest in your handle! Awesome. How did you come to having that? Mine is an old family property name.

          Oh, that’s so cool!!! Mine isn’t a family name. My middle name is McLeod and somewhere in my 20’s I decided I wanted to “Forest my Dreams!”, so for about 5 minutes I seriously considered changing my name to Forrester McLeod. That still makes me smile….so, I’m forresting my cloud! Maybe when I turn 70 or so I’ll change it officially. Give the family and friends something to laugh about! 🤣Nice to meet You and Cheers!!! 🤗

            Now you say that, I do remember reading this on your about me page? Is that right? Forresting my cloud seems just perfect! There is a lovely visual imagery I see, when I say the words in my head.

    The birds they sang
    At the break of day
    Start again
    I heard them say
    Don’t dwell on what
    Has passed away
    Or what is yet to be
    Yeah the wars they will
    Be fought again
    The holy dove
    She will be caught again
    Bought and sold
    And bought again
    The dove is never free
    Ring the bells
    that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in

    ~ Leonard Cohen

    What a beautiful palette you used to make this painting, Katy! 🎨 It brings me peace and hope. I love the candle-like image in the painting. ✨💜😊

    I don’t know why, but that little bow at the bottom of the window catches the eye, and the mind. I love that it started out as a mistake…hope for us all 🙂

    Your haiku and artwork are truly inspirational, Katy. I guess the haiku expresses the meaning of life itself, where everything flows undone, and there is light in the void to give us hope. I don’t konw if this was what you wanted to express. I have also wondered about “the squiggly knot at the bottom” as Peter commented. To me it seems like the human need to aprehend beauty and light in our lives that flow like rivers. Anyway, great work!

      Thank You, Marta!!! I love this, “…the human need to aprehend beauty and light in our lives that flow like rivers.” That’s really lovely. You completely got my haiku, and yeah…..the squiggly knot at the bottom was an accident that I turned into a bow and it made me laugh. It reminded me so much of life and how ends of things get pulled/they come all undone/light floods in somehow and on and on it goes….so that’s where the haiku came from. It was a good reminder to me that there are no mistakes in art!!! 😅🤗❤️😊

    This is so beautiful, and just what we need I think at a time like this of such uncertainty in the world. I love that soft little glow of the candle in the window, and your words of such hope. Beautiful  ♥

    I’m intrigued by the squiggly knot at the bottom which appears to hold the artwork together. It’s as if you threaded a light string round and round and came back to the start to tie it off! I love it Katy.

      Thank You, Peter!!! The knot was a happy accident. I drew the bottom of the window so unevenly and considered it to be a mistake at first but made it into a bow, which made me laugh. Reminds me a lot of life. 😅I hope You are having a wonderful weekend!!! 🤗❤️😊
