A 14 × 14 inch, acrylic painting of the sky. A journal entry is handwritten on the painting:

“Sometimes I feel like Bob Ross when I make these paintings. This morning I finished the 10 day meditation course at 29 Palms. I’m sure my practice was strengthened because I am so much less reactive to the pain of sitting a long time. But it’s a little disconcerting how difficult it is to translate this to real life and how quickly I have slipped back into normalcy.
