I am reminded of going to live events with Thomas. Or simply listening to music here at home. Not nearly enough. LOL. Making up for lost time now! Filling the house with Jazz to influence grandson? Maybe? He is not complaining_____I think I heard him playing some.
Reading Ink Heart for fun. Getting close to the end. It is a good exercise for me to read. Reading helps me to focus, and slow myself down so I am not scanning text. It is a great way to learn how to write as well. Reading out loud is also a good practice. If we hear ourselves, work at making the story come to life, using the punctuation properly is key to this. It does help writing as well. So read out loud to kids, grandkids, and the self. The older English teachers were right when they encouraged this! I do not think children of today get this in their lives. They could if the family sat down and took turns reading. Reading out loud teaches children, and ourselves to listen better as well! Merlock thinks I am talking to him or he likes the story! LOL.
It is beginning to cloud up! But what a lovely day out there earlier! It’s 3:00 pm now. Best wishes! Pejj
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
