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???

it was a restless dream
I heard my thoughts,
the challenges from various sections
of my overworked gray cells
the unfinished sentences
the words of wisdom
clashing with aggressive shouts
the voice of reason was not to be ignored
throught it all
a part of me sat unmoved
was this nonsense
or merely me
unable to make sense
of the prattle and the inner voices
that when all vying for attention
at the same time
make no sense at all

PL calendar day 10
When you are not having fun, could it be because you re being lazy? Sometimes you feel blue or can’t seem to find the joy in doing anything. At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.
If sadness and lack of hope knock I your heart – try to do something positive for someone else.

Day 9 PL Calendar
It is interesting because it is different
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in a mindset. “This is the way, it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
fly into the sunshine
glide on the smallest of breeze
know the ease of flight
through air and matter,
when you believe
with all your might
that the Universe and you are ONE
in the blink of an eye
time is redefined

Day 3, PL Calendar
Instead of worrying o something about it
It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “what if this happens/” or “things might end up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.
In life if we never attempt something new, we will never know the full extent of our capabilities. Accomplishments come in many sizes and guises. Doing is healthy, walking with intent, getting out, exploring, discovering new possibilities. It is a wonderful and amazing world we live in, human behaviour is what puts a damper on things/situations.
” I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp in focus picture of it in my head” Jack Nicklaus (golfer)
