This is a painting from my "Regarding Fire" series. On day two of high heat and humidity in my area, I thought a sprinkler would be good to cool off. This sprinkler, however, is supposed to go on in the event of heat from a fire. I believe it is to minimize the damage of fire. I wonder about what internal sprinkler systems I might have to go on in the event of heat from pressure, conflict, or frustration. How can I respond? If I have the time to intentionally wait, I can pray, read and meditate, write in my journal, rest if I'm tired, and eat if I'm hungry. Sometimes there's no time for those, so I can do my best to respond with clarity and strength, dousing the heat and not adding to it.
