Behind the Curtain


I had a post decided for today – and it was dark.  It was to be about my current mood – still ensconced in heart ache.  It was to be about  feeling Hopeless.  No longer expecting anything with any measure of confidence for myself – no longer cherishing or desiring with anticipation.

But as a believer in contagious moods and in keeping with looking for good – I made the decision to apply that to myself.

I declared today Pajama Day! And as I lay on my bed watching a movie – a ray of light found its way onto my television screen.

I paused the movie,  fetched a beautiful piece of material to cover the sheer curtain on the offending window and stopped.  And noticed.  And was inspired.

I give you – Behind the Curtain.

This is what I saw – and it caught my breath.  I had covered my Thai Buddha and plant while shutting out the light – and in the process,  brought some into myself.

I was fascinated and began to play.

I looked around my room for other suitable silhouettes.

I so love the elbow pushing against the cloth during this ’embrace’

And lastly – the ‘offending’ window – that brought unexpected light.
