Good Things

After my somewhat whiney post yesterday, I would like to thank you readers for your well-wishes, and assure you that everything is A-OK here. One thing that may not have come across in yesterday’s post is that my time crunch is very very temporary—my boss returns next week, and upon her return, I will start working a part-time day-job schedule (afternoons only), yippee! So, I’m looking forward to the end of next week when I can start seeing what life will really be like to balance my new day-job and art. In the meantime, there have been so many beautiful things to notice here that I thought I’d share them with you:

1. Beautiful clear sun-shining skies every day this week
2. An evening walk yesterday to try and identify birds (a new-found interest of mine). I saw few birds, but the trees were beautiful silhouetted against the evening sky.
3. Lunching with my husband every day this week—we are both in the same area of town for work.
4. Reading Ines of My Soul, a newer book by one of my favorite fiction writers Isabel Allende.
5. The gigantic Complete Poems by E.E. Cummings sitting next to my bed—it even has poems written by him when he was 10 years old! (collection is edited by G. Firmage)
6. Listening to blast from the past 80s and 90s music while I drive my courier route at work. The songs make me laugh—I know so many of the words and can remember that angsty period of my life while listening.
7. Always knowing that art is just a pen-stroke away.

What are some of your good things? Leave a comment here to add to the list!

Happy trails and art-making to you!

    Glad to hear things are a-ok…ups and downs of life, right?! So I’ve been observing birds too. Our family put out a birdhouse and the little ones are all coming out to eat our breadcrumbs, it’s amusing to just watch!

    Music from the 80’s… oh no, that was disco; I went into hiding and didn’t resurface until 1992, when Tom Waits released “Bone Machine.”
