Good morning Sunshine! “We are not straws in the wind to be blown in every direction_____but important persons who can take command and make every minute of this new day something to remember.” Joyce Hifler, Pathways
I think I shall read some from this book today to remind me of good thoughts within its pages. I am edging on a procrastination funk. I am certain of why. I am triggered by the clutter around me, and it has piled up. I only have to clean up! Rather than “go there!” I am not going to! I have the advantage of moving away from old thoughts, I am in a good place. All I have to do is begin. I know if I only begin I will continue on because I am pleased with myself.
It does not matter what I decide to do this day as long as I take care of myself in the mix. Prioritizing is the goals such as getting the Census out of the way for one thing and some daily housework. The whole day is there to plan out.
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
