Change Of Scene
Painting - Impasto
Someone clever once said that a change is as good as a rest. We are always busy in the cities these days. Running up and down doing this or the other. Competing with each other. Who has the latest car, phone or latest dressing style.
We do it so effectively we forget we need a break. Leave. Get away from the Hustle and bustle of the city. Go visit some rural home. All of us came from some rural place, or at least our parents did. If you don't have a rural home, then at least visit with some friends.
Rapid urbanization has resulted in increased urban air pollution in major cities. Get out of the city for a while. You might not believe me now until you leave.
When you get there, sit down on an old stool and get the feel of it. Breathe in the fresh air. Smell the chicken and the goats. Feel the dust under your feet. Feel the wind behind your ears (If you like, on the face works too). Milk a cow while you are at it. Get to see stars at night since they are almost always hidden in big cities at night (Not that we could see them in the day). Take it easy. Add a few years to your life.
