Over the last three weeks, I've also been taking a meditation course every Tuesday and Thursday night. Why talk about painting and meditation in the same post? Well, painting has become a kind of meditation for me and it's been really good.
When you are painting a house outdoors you are well, spending time outdoors and the repetitive motion of covering thirsty wood with paint, getting it right, not painting over the lines is a meditative activity for me. My mind is free of mundane details and monkey brain type of thinking. Thus, I have relaxed and liberated myself from a lot burdensome useless thoughts not to mention, inhabited my body in a way that I haven't done in years.
Saturday, I was on the roof painting the chimney and various vents...
Next, I have to inserts slats into an 125 foot fence. I hope this will feel meditative too, as opposed to well, dull and boring.
Talk to you later.
