Open Window

Matisse, Open Window, 1905

Today is the first day in at least six months, maybe a year, that I don’t have a freelance magazine article deadline to contend with on top of my regular job and family life. This happened because I said a word I rarely say to editors: No.

The various assignments have mostly been fun and the income welcome, but I’m so relieved to have a break. I googled images tonight to illustrate the feeling: open road…big sky…open window.

The Sound of Music notion of God closing doors and opening windows looms large in my world view. I hope I manage not to say yes to the next thing until the view looks like this painting.
