Good Morning Sunshine! Camaraderie

“Mom”

Good Morning! Camaraderie in a moment

I like when unique moments in time happen. Tom called these____

One such moment was when I had given my mother some facial skincare cream. And she had been using it a while. My daughter Jacobie and I went for a visit. It was obvious that mom had been using the facial cream, yet all around her lips there were deep wrinkles, the rest of the face smooth. So I took the risk of asking mom; while Jacobie caught on to my question with a dubious look at me. Like really? You are going to ask her about her face? Should I leave now? Or watch this? I finished, asking “Mom? Have you been putting the cream around your lips? To Jacobie’s surprise. Mom just said, “No.” Well, my daring came out and I said, “I think you should.” To this, she said, “Why?” I said, “Because your mouth looks like a puncture made in bread dough by a finger.” The unexpected happened. We all broke out in laughter! Tears came out from eyes. It was a great moment in time, No matter how dubious it may have been. I lucked out. Mom was a bit tricky at times so such moments felt rare. Humor? Had worked. If it had gotten works I thought someone else might say something or just avoid looking at mom least their imaginations kick in like mine always has since a kid! A similar thing happened when my brother was caught up with his imagination looking at Mom severely scolding him. He thought she looked like Witch Hazel from Pop-eye and thus called her “Witch Hazel when she was mad at him. Again, this made Mom laugh! She got it! She did look a lot like Witch Hazel I observed. But I am not telling her that! Skipper, my brother can get away with it, I dare not!

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
