I had the most incredulous experience yesterday… not a good one. My second day in Toronto. Loving the multicultural diversity of this beautiful city and met a lot of friendly supportive Canadians. Decided to have dinner at a nearby sushi place and a chatty lady next to me decided to have a conversation with me. She was friendly and as the conversation continues, she found out that I am from usa and asked me how I feel about the election results. And then she proceeded to tell me why this is a good thing for USA, how Trump was the victim, how I should read his book. I can feel my blood boiling and I also realize that she only wanted to convince me she is right and was not interested in having an exchange of thoughts. luckily I was almost done with my dinner. I told her I disagree but thanked her and left. I was so rattled, lots of emotions rolling all over me… went back to my hotel room and painted this. Why do people feel the need to correct others, convince others that their position is the right one and that yours is wrong. I have my own thoughts and opinions, thank you very much. And what’s a Canadian telling me this for? You don’t even live in USA! I could not bring myself to paint a blue blue face, despite how I was feeling. So I painted her with some color underneath. I know the light will emerge eventually. It will. Kindness and love will conquer all. So, “if you’re feeling blue, paint yourself a different color.”
