It Will Set You Free

On a day like today, I change my tote bag from foundation manager to gallery director. My commute is shorter, but the intensity of the day is the same. I wake up early to exercise and listen to Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More. I’ve been singing that song for days…

I hear our son tell me “Mama, I love you” in Spanish and it melts me. My edition for Sequoia Tees is on view today and I’m thrilled. I look around our small apartment and smile because the hallway is currently a studio, my side of the bed has books and recently purchased art supplies. On top of art supplies and projects, the living room looks like the Hall of Justice. This boy loves super heroes! I keep smiling and think of the rooftop. The vegetable garden was a great experiment this year. The tomato plants are about to close shop, but the kale, spinach, broccoli and garlic are happy, very happy…

It’s busy for sure, but there are so many positive things going on. All I can sing is “Love that will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free…”

Sigh No More
By Mumford & Sons

Serve God love me and men
This is not the end
Live unbruised we are friends
And I’m sorry
I’m sorry

Sigh no more, no more
One foot in sea one on shore
My heart was never pure
You know me
You know me

And man is a giddy thing
Oh man is a giddy thing
Oh man is a giddy thing
Oh man is a giddy thing

Love that will not betray you,
dismay or enslave you,
It will set you free
Be more like the man
you were made to be

There is a design,
An alignment to cry,
At my heart you see,
The beauty of love
as it was made to be
