Good Morning everyone…
I am working on a new project, this is how far I’ve progressed since the other day. Working with the medium I am using I prefer to let the layers dry before I move on to other layers.
Plus the layer I am working on might have to be done in stages since it is “come as you are” inspiration. Meaning, I work on it when I am “feeling it” Some projects get finished others do not. Simple fact. I long ago learned that I am happiest living in the moment. I am not a planner in the sense that I map out what I will do next fall, or next year.
As it turns out this has become a blessing for me. My husband having been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, we live each day, happy to start a day, and to once again share the happiness of being together. Every day is a huge blessing, one we are grateful and thankful for.
In the book “the power of kindness” by Piero Ferrucci, he has 2 lines that stands out for me. “To remember is to live. To forget is to die”
In PL we have the 21st precept. Live in Perfect Liberty.
Today we start another day, I wish you joy, happiness and all that you desire to make it a memorable one.
Till soon Q
Sometimes we have to do what we want .. no matter what. Ringo decided he was going to come to visit. I saw him before he arrived, only I had my own ideas, but his desire to be present over ruled my half-baked idea.
That is what happens in life, we may want something, we have it in our mind, just what we want or what we need to do to achieve or get to our goal, However along the way, it just didn’t or doesn’t work out that way. You followed the steps, you went forward the way you thought you should, and when you got to the end.. It just wasn’t the same. Not that it was a negative or simply not to your liking, it just wasn’t what you had, had in mind.
As an artist/writer, or other creative soul, it is an experience that happens to us often enough. We are good at adapting, truth be told, we kind of like the hiccups along the way, It allows for opportunities to experiment and usually go beyond what we have grown comfortable with.

Happiness comes from within. I wish only happiness and longevity to all around me, no matter our beliefs, our differences, we really are all ONE.

While my latest card says to Dream and Be Happy… I’m trying to find the balance between discomfort and ”darn that hurts” It is distracting. On talk show radio today while driving around from errand to errand… (I was being productive) there was a feature on how Emergency rooms are having to deal with dental emergencies, and are not equipped for the problems they are seeing.
It seems there are many people for one reason or another don’t go to a dentist, and then suffer terrible pain at some point when they encounter a severe tooth problem.. ie. they need a root canal etc. They are in so much pain, the doctor says they can’t answer a question properly the pain has distracted them so much.
As I listened, and wondered, hmmm is the pain subjective? I myself was caught by a sudden burning sensation in my right ear. Ooohhhh that hurts as I put my hand up to the ear, trying to sooth it with some warmth from my hand. Then I remembered that the dentist had told me that I had the equivalent of a sprained ankle in my jaw.. and I was to rest the jaw, not chew down on foods that would stress the jaw. He said “it is a warning sign” that if I didn’t take care of the situation now.. it could lead to bigger problems.
Even suggested a mouth guard.. yes … a mouth guard… and he gave me an estimate of the cost for such an appliance. Oh dear… I recall making a mental note, to **try to talk less =^_^= ** ** refrain from eating pistachios for a while** and try to eat foods that were easy on the jaw, like soups, etc. The discomfort was an instant reminder that I have not been following my “good intentions”
Even the finding of great fancy scissors that another crafts person parted with and a wonderful discounted bargain price failed to take my attention away from the “raging” ACHE in my jaw.. which shows itself through the ear.
So.. my obvious lesson today, is to stop being lazy .. and stubborn.. lazy, not taking the time to make and eat homemade soup that is nourishes and soft and easy on the jaw.. stubborn, thinking that I did it for a few days and that was enough, I knew better??? Wot! So if I have a discomfort, whose fault is it??………………….MINE
It is called owning the decisions we made and the results of……
the results of cleaning my brushes on the back of a book… liked it so left it that way the black is gesso
