Computer Monster

I go back and forth between fearlessly making web changes and attempts at increasing my social media presence and hiding in my studio hole and ignoring the computer completely.  Every time I at least do something I learn something so what is my resistance?  The computer just seems like a big monster some days!  Maybe it's that simple.  I tried drawing a mean monster and it actually looks more ridiculous than scary.  What does that tell me?!

Flamingos on the go.

Yosemite,  found the pictures.  I completely forgot I had the presence of mind to take the photos because  I was so crazy with panic and vertigo from the ride out of the park.  I blanked a lot of the trip to California.

April rain motivated me to write

Back in March I helped create a Truffula Forest at CFUM for the celebration of Dr. Suess' birthday and the Lorax movie launch. I wrote in my prayer journal about how everyone who saw the forest was changed.  Cheered and completely smile-faced.  I connected that to a God Power.  It was a vision for what GOD can do through my art.  I say and want to continue to say "Yes!" to GOD working that way in - through me.

Flamingos in Chicago

It was such a hot day walking around in Chicago and the galleries were on the European Schedule - closed in August!!! So... we are in the meatpacking district or one of them. The train crossings grew the tallest weeds - admirable. On our way back to the bus and someplace to eat lunch the flamingo just HAD to ride the rails.

A new flock of flamingos!!

I have been shopping for some new yard flamingos but the cost makes me pause. These little cuties I found and are keeping me smiling. I have one friend who will take them traveling with her. Can't wait to see their travels documented. But for now just Iowa antics around the house.

More chalk work

Helen returned from Russia and since she was arriving late I colored the driveway in case I was asleep when she pulled up at the house.

Moving on to the next thing

A few vacation days does alter thinking. The thing i liked the most was not wearing a watch and pretty much refusing to look at a clock. I had a long list of things that I might do and after I wrote everything down then I asked what's first? GOD what do you want me to do? So I worked and cooked and sat and did nothing, ate and slept and read my way through the days. I met people and I had time alone. Most of all I liked the non-clockness of the time. Of the thime, that's curious. Now I wonder how to keep the calm sense of not measuring time in the middle of a day that is pretty much ruled by the clock. A good challenge for me to change language from busyness to focus. Hmmmmm. More later for sure.
This is the food heaven for the moment. Homegrown raspberries and New Jersey Blueberries, Sigh... Grilled peaches with 3-B Sauce (butter, brown sugar and Bourbon) is coming in a close second.
