Today, before meditation: no idea of what I would paint.
After meditation: picked up a sketchbook and brought myself a little unexpected smile. Part of the smile came from the irony of having painted something related to Christmas, a holiday about which I have a few(!) conflicted feelings. The bigger part of the smile came from remembering the earliest Christmases of my life, in Cranford, NJ, about which I have no conflicted feelings.
