Good Morning! Sunshine! What tugs at you? Can you do it?

Good Morning! Everyone! My printing press.

It is still very cold outside. It is 6 out there. A cozy sweater day!

I have two presses now! And it does tug at me to do printmaking, but nope, not now, not now! I have made a commitment. But if you have not made a commitment with what you are about these days, go with one more thing for the start of a new year! keep things in mind, I will and watch for a chance.

Today is a day for writing the Shibui manual. Breaks? I will fill the dishwasher and do laundry. How do you make your day work so things move forward? I think I will make muffins for the morning as well. I do dusting and pick up too as well as stretching exercises.

My cards? “You should be experiencing the life that’s happening to you, not the one you wish was happening. Don’t waste a moment of life trying to make things happen: appreciate the moments you are given.” Well! That’s thought-provoking! #2 Card. “The spiritual journey is one of constant transformation. To grow, you must give up the struggle to remain the same, and learn to embrace change at all times.” I am enjoying embracing change and seeing it as a new path. After Tom’s death, I felt I needed to live life in new ways. #3 card. I have pulled this one before. Your God is in ecstasy and there is nothing you can do about it. And if God is in ecstasy, I wonder what he sees in you?” Again, I do not feel God is just male. I think that what God is, is a great consciousness we all are a part of. That God is found within us.

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
