I love this time of year, especially the coming months. Those of you who follow along, know of my utterly obsessive interest in doing “October” art forms. I have begun again, I see it sneaking into my various “art” projects.
What has also claimed some of my attention, is fall allergies… We are really not anywhere near fall season, but the weather has been blowing up the country harvests and mites.. The air must be full of something that is not sitting well with my “system”.
Such is life. The stock pile of tissue boxes will now start to diminish. and the sinus and allergy pills will come out of hiding to be front and centre in my activity areas.
I have long accepted that having seasonal allergies is part of my life experience. Acceptance, makes it easier to do what needs doing, so that I sail through the season with not too many changes to daily life.
PL # 27 -2014 calendar
Let’s Interact proactively with an ever -changing environment, society and life in general.
A day at the beach with your favourite people. Then a sound sleep at the end of the sofa while your human takes a nap.
In PL we learn to appreciate life, not only humans in the world with us, all living beings, and the material objects that make our lives more comfortable. Appreciation, respect are the natural fibres of/in our lives that bring contentment.
PL Principle #3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
Happy Saturday, may it be a productive one for you.
Before working in a journal, the pages have to be prepped. Especially since I am a mixed media artist. I use different medium to work on the pages. I have had so many projects to work on the past while that I have lost track of time. I simply spend hours in the studio. This meant, pushing the Xmas cards to the back of the burner, while I prep* pages to work on them.
*work on the pages – doing backgrounds and then priming them with a Gesso that seals the page so the inks or paints won’t bleed when I begin working on them.
Life is the same. We commit to something then before we are done, something else comes up and we juggle. Choices pop up and we have to decide what is the best way to proceed. I reasoned that Xmas isn’t till December, BUT. I need to turn them in before the fall, so that the agencies can do what they need to do.
Am I procrastinating when I start something else before I finish another project? The PL Calendar for day 23 ( I know we are not where near the 23rd) ” Once you have set out to do something, it is your job. ” Job? I am retired !!! Then it goes on to say, Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses, continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.
Written words and philosophies can be so confusing at times. anyone want to put in some ideas.views, give me something to ponder???
