A Peaceful Place

I needed a peaceful place for my mind to be this week - it's been a tough one for this country.  I would like to get angry and stomp around out there, but instead I painted this instead to help me sort out my thoughts.

I need to understand how I really feel first. The real feeling is always hidden under the anger. The anger will eventually morph into frustration if I give it time and space. The frustration will then settle into profound sorrow. It's the sorrow that finally allows me to feel compassion for people who are in so much pain that they need to do destructive things to themselves and others.
