Good Morning Sunshine! Comfort and Love.

Mr. Merlock

There’s that sunshine out there! Good Morning! I may have one eye open! I woke up to the purring of Merlock, he was being very cute, positioning himself directly in front of my face, reaching out to me after I had petted him. Technically he is my daughter’s cat. She could not take him when she moved into their apartment. I finally stopped asking him “How did I end up with you? Remind me.” Don’t get me wrong he is a very nice cat and I enjoy him. It just took some adjusting to being interrupted when I work. He thinks he needs me to walk him to his food dish or add ice cubes to his water. It’s a patting session otherwise. A handsome fellow, an all silvery gray Chateaux whose fur does look blueish at times, or his tail will look almost black. Merlock is a cat who has expectations of you. If you do it once you will do it again for sure. He is the forever shadow I have adjusted to. Since Tom’s death a comforting companion.

I’ll share a bit of verse as I end this blog. Some food for thought is always good for the soul. Poems are puzzles that sustain you. (Not a lot to do with a cat. LOL)

“Love is the river of life in this world, Think not that ye know it who stand at the little tinkling rill, the first small fountain.__Not until you have gone through the rocky gorges, and not lost the stream, not until you have gone through the meadow, and the stream has widened and deepened until fleets would tide on its bosom; not until beyond the meadow you have come to the unfathomable ocean and poured your treasures into its depths__not until then can you know what love is.” Henry Ward Beecher.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
