I Saw Sunday
for I Saw Sunday, a collection of things I saw during the past week:
A video at the hospital concerning a procedure called an Angiogram, which I must have done in a few weeks time. Two patients, a man and a woman go through the procedure, which is lengthy and was terribly scary until I saw the video and asked 150 questions and met a wonderful young woman named Becca, who had answers for each one.
Drove past the rehab/nursing center where my Mother passed away this last spring. Miss her and think of her every day. There was an older woman sitting outside in a wheel chair, she had white hair. And for one small moment I hoped she’d look familiar.
Gave myself permission to just slow it all down and do some coloring. It is calming and soothing, and the colors speak and whisper about different places, different times, and often tell me what would look best beside them.
My oldest daughter’s face as she has helped process my thinking through these past weeks, quietly being here with me, willing to listen whenever I chose to speak about all the things I’ve been learning, thinking, and feeling.
The shadow of a butterfly flitting against the screen outside my window where the blinds were drawn. Butterflies are a symbol of transformation and I took her presence to mean a promise. I also decided, as I watched her for those few seconds, to color her deep purple with markings of pale yellow and lilac mist.
