Day 413– Calm After the Storm- Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty is found in the calm after the storm. I am not talking about the storm outside today. This storm was inside of me as I ruined a competition piece I had been working on for several months. After the merger waterworks and thunder, i was able to find a place of calm and start to see a way to repair my work. The beauty is a finished piece with hardly any sign of repair. But more important is the calm I feel inside. I do not like how unhinged i seem togged lately.
