Good Morning! Coffee at the right! So far this morning, I have written for an hour on the manual; correcting, and adding some missing information.
Now a break from writing the manual, and into the writing of today’s blog.
I am tracking my writing time so that I have a record of my consistency in my writing habits. Also working towards an 8 hour day, seeing the recording results makes me feel good about “time off”.
When you work out of your own home as many artists and writers often do, you never leave the workspace. Having the habit of the 8 hour day feels better than “I will work now.” Untracked, you may fall into the trap of “Have I done enough?”
Our minds and bodies need breaks, and there are other things that need doing. Sitting too much is not good either. The constant problem is exercise and moving in general, eating the right foods, taking time for your social life by reaching out and having friends. Our bodies need rest as well. Creating that balance matters when it comes to meeting needs.
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
