Lucid Life of a Painter

Luid hours swung chasing hue
Creole, Earth, and Tigress Blue
Paper perched like cigarette
Tingling betwix some fond regret
Overture and undertook
Big brass bed and summer porched nook
Flinted wind braze past old skin
Turned petal pink from memory’s grin
How’d you like a tinkered twine
How’d you like this glass of wine
How’d you look if space were filled
With every creep of memorous tone
Gilded Green, Vermilliòn


(Original watercolor painting by artist Happy Sattva.)


Whipper Snapper Nappers!


There’s a buzz in the air. Articles circulating social media sites are touting the natural sleeping patterns of man may not be what we’re use to. Instead of the 8 hour straight star lit slumber perhaps we are more naturally suited for shorter spells? There’s speculation that history suggests humans may inherently cycle by a different clock – one that ticks to the tune of two 4 hour stretches of shut eye. During those mid-morning witching hours we have a certain consciousness that is rarely tapped during daylight drudgeries. These hours of quiet stillness accommodate spiritual exploration, cognitive growth through reading, meditative disciplining and all of those other inward growth practices that we fight to find time for during our days.


I’ve begun waking around 2 or 3am most mornings. Instead of lying there wide eyed longing for dreams… I’ve been grabbing the nearest book, settling some stones on my chakras for a mid-night balance, or grabbing a sketchpad to doodle out some inspirations. It’s become a glorious time to connect with my Self and the oneness of the Universe.

Next time your eyes pop out of your dream state and you’re left staring into the blackness of your bedroom… open your Self to receiving from that moment all that it could be. Your happiness is calling. ❤
