At the end of the day :: À la fin du jour

There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual—become clairvoyant. We reach then into reality. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom.
—The Art Spirit, Robert Henri.

I have been missing painting/drawing/thinking about painting in the past days but either that I am too busy or just too tired… yikes! The semester has been long, with many hardships and some joys. My students are very nice, and most of them seem interested in what I have to say, so this fills most of my days with meaning… other days are filled with grading, course lessons, course plans, correcting, giving back grades, and trying to bring up my energy levels to suffice the requirements of teaching 85 16-18 year olds. I get home happy, fatigued and in great need of some quiet time!

De ce temps-ci, je n’ai que le temps de préparer/corriger/planfier mes cours et très peu pour peindre, dessiner ou même réfléchir sur la peinture. Ça me manque, mais bientôt je vais avoir du temps pour renouer avec ces choses que j’aime tant!
