PROVERB

So cute
In the eyes of my parents
I was a cute newborn
Now older
Wrinkled
But still cute 🙂


THE STORY

My studio is right on the Mahurangi River’s edge in central Warkworth and is the habitat of plenty of wildlife.

This means I get to see the playground’s visual stimuli and hearing sounds, eating habits, and mating habits from many species of Flora and Fauna. Sparrows, Ducks, Geese, Heron, Fantails, Kingfishers, Morepork, Tui, Song Thrush, Silver Eyes. Doves, Blackbirds, Mullet, White Bait. Eels, Wood Pigeon, Kaka, Seagulls, Blackjacked Gulls, Chaffinch, Eastern Rosella, Myna, Skylark. Tuatara, Skink, Shags, Rats, Cats, Dogs, and many homo sapiens of all races and breeds.

I marvel at all this from my studio window or wonderful riverside grade … under the sun, in the rain at night, or under the moonshine.

This small creature brings so much joy and pleasure. In my quiet observation, I find myself a wealthy person because I made time to stop and be grateful. It is rich to have nothing but gratitude. Mallard duckling wildlife art

A Metaphor

While typing I’ve realized (likewise with “Mallard Ducklings 2”) how abundant this life is in all its fullness. If I am too busy to see this then perhaps I am too busy in the wrong pursuits.

My busyness is rooted in fear of having too little income to supply my needs. At times I live beyond my means and covet things I cannot afford while my youth passes into wrinkles.

Because I’ve put pressure on myself through unwise choices, the stress of owing money to others has made me chase my tail and the vanity of toys I don’t need.

Reducing stress, doing without, and being grateful for the little things are giving me a healthier lifestyle.

Now I have more time for others, without the fear of having to do without.

I have more time to see and I can keep my youth in mind.

Even talking to the animals has given me a new respect for this planet, for God who made it, and for what He has told us about its future.

I rest in this knowledge.

Despite the collective mismanagement of our planet, it will not end as the visions of false prophets predict. Short-sighted prophets who see only the natural, without the counsel of heaven, will miss the mark.

Hard times are coming. After the cancer of evil has been purged, there will be new growth, new life, new vision, and a healthy planet. Read the Constitution and the insights recorded from Heaven. You will get the picture if you ask the Maker for the revelations He has already revealed.

This little duckling reflects the glory of our Manufacture, the wonders of which I am now unashamed to honor in all my artistic endeavors.
