Good Morning Sunshine!

Following edges

Well! Good morning! I see blue sky! Lots of clouds, no rain. Hmmmmm. Got the coffee and mail! Two pen pal letters, one from Switzerland, one from California. Those will be fun! I especially savor Sean’s letters from Switzerland because he discuses some interesting topics! Like nature vs nurture, what it means to be male and female. He will put a new topic of interest in the letters. I love pen palling, have done it on and off over the years. Writing with a fountain pen, quill, or dip pen. There are some serious pen pal writers out there, and then there are some who like very simple letters and exchange recipes, etc. Not one of those, and there is nothing wrong with this. Pen paler let people know what they are interested in. Three categories I know of are long letters, short letters, and elegant letters. This last type is usually done with the fountain pen, quill or dip pen, special inks, and paper. It’s a well-written, well-thought-out paper. Something as well-written prose, with perfect grammar. This type of pen pal seems rare but interesting. It’s a lot of work to write like that unless you have done it forever I think. I was looking up pen pals sites one day and found this information. For a while pen palling seemed to be lost. There is a renewal in the interest now I think because of Covid. I learned of Penpalooza via my Poets and Writers Magazine. This is a website which has lots of pen pals but also you can give gifts to others but it is not necessary. So far some really nice people. Pen palling fits my day and how I spend my time. I admit lately it’s blogging that fills the day, writing a children’s book has been added, and the instruction manual, the more important goal.

Best wishes! On with the day! I am not ready for “Dance Monkey” and housework, not yet.

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
