I have a small cup of coffee to the right! I can hear cars swishing by, and yet this kind of quiet I marvel at, Aaaaaaaahhhhh_____! The sun is out! My favorite thing to check for each day. Blue skies and sunshine! Coffee and morning meds. The day can begin now but only after I do Merlock the cat. Is there a hole in the bottom of his cat food dish? If so, more cat food. Yup, it’s like a doughnut____smart cat! Is there water? Yes____has he put the black hair elastic in the water dish? Yes! We think he does this to see the bottom. Ice cubes? No, I did not get some for me so he’s good. I get the mail. Alex’s tool kid of screwdrivers etc for his computer has come! Now he can put in the new ??? whatever he said it was. An early Christmas gift from Grammie.
Today it is writing pulling my information together for the instruction manual, in an A to Z outline. The writing begins! I can’t seem to find a worthy template about how to write an instructional manual. So I have decided to look at the book my professor wrote. It is what I have in mind. So? Am I writing an instruction book or a book about Shibui that tells about its process? I think it’s best not to overthink this.
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
The tree is awesome…so glad you feel in the spirit and have company coming!!
