magic carpet ride

I like to dream yes, yes, in between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night

~ Magic Carpet Ride by Steppenwolf
Is life feeling a little dull and dishpan water? Are you looking for a little dreamy excitement? Our Son of Water is your guy. He drinks from the cup of Life, drinks deep, and he'd like to take you along. The Son of Water isn't interested in racing around to get things done, isn't interested in confrontations or battles of will. If you're not interested, you can go your way and he'll most certainly go his. He thinks you'd have a better time with him though so . . . Why not?

I've found our Son of Water to be an either/or sort of energy. Either there is too much emotion going on, like a flash flood, or there isn't enough, like a drought. To strike a balance, it might be a good idea to let a little poetry in with the newsfeed. Create something beautiful where beauty is needed. Being an artist or not means nothing ~ just go make something that makes your heart sing. Let go of results. The Son of Water doesn't care. He simply wants to see you have a good time riding the waves.

So.

Dabble. Play. Get a box of cheap watercolors and splash some paint around letting shapes form themselves. Write a few haiku lines. Create a wonderful meal even if it's a comforting macaroni and cheese. Weave your own magic carpet. Have fun!
