Community, Friends and Loneliness
I'm thankful for my community that I'm a part of. It is sometimes exciting, sometimes boring, sometimes calm, sometimes tumultuous, sometimes religious, sometimes sinful, sometimes uniform, sometimes incredibly diverse. In any case, it is my community. I'm a part of it. I have friends I love and who love me. We are bound together somehow. And even though we individually go through seasons where we feel disconnected, alienated and isolated, when we come to our senses we know that our friends, who really want to be loyal and true, are always there. I'm thankful that as the cold weather stakes its claim, people are planning parties. We have one coming up tomorrow night. It's a time when we can come out of our holes of loneliness and gather in a warm room of love. Here's a small painting I did yesterday. I call it Northern Friends. It's available in an eBay auction HERE.
