Oh! It is a rainy, wet windy fall day! And it is a day to remember that sunshine is coming! It will be time to close things up and put things away for sure now! Sadly all the leaves will go, thanks to the rain and wind or simply because it’s time. The world does need its rest before spring. Otherwise not so nice a spring!
And the next sunny day I should walk outside and put things away. I am sure the ground is all soft and I will destroy some moles home, left to feel guilty. The small trees still need to be cut, and if I want to put lights on the Blue spruce this should be done now and cords will need to be protected. at least the snow will cover the lawn, I need blades to be put on my lawnmower and mow one last time. A friend has promised to help with this.
Back to work on some other things! Some Sonny Rollins for putting poetry away anyone? If not Rollins some Cantaloupe Island Saxophone Magic? Ah! Sax by Candlelight. I keep waltzing in my mind with that kind but favor them unless I am going for certain musicians. I can write and have that in the background though. I have a lot to choose from. Glad vinyl is back! there is always Dance Monkey or Move it! Move it! The oldies for a peppy mood.
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
