I was thinking of climbing out when my phone rang! It was Oliver Thomas! Age 5 1/2. So, now we are on the phone chatting as he plays his game. He is such a cutie! I am not quite awake_____. Today? A bit more coffee and a piece of date and apple coffee cake.
If you have grandchildren____ You might find yourself playing Roblox or Minecraft. Ollie makes the third boy play Minecraft with, Em the first girl. It’s ok to suck at these games, you do get “it” after a while! LOL I am glad he found one Roblox game where I was not getting killed by other players. Not so much fun in my mind. But____I am hanging out with my little guy!
Ollie is rather special. He glued himself to me! When he was just little, I get all these hugs. When they come to stay he and Emma would sleep with me, and they pen me down all night long by hugging me and holding onto me. I know how Gulliver feels. With Ollie, if I moved just a little he squeeze my arm harder, or he would snuggle closer, pen me down with his leg over me, even in his sleep. I love feeling loved as Grammie!
I would sing songs, one after another___ to him and Emma, they had their favorites___I sang until they fell asleep when they were younger then but we laugh as singing “Down In The Valley still puts them to sleep. We laugh about this. I helped Mom by watching them when she did school for her LPN.
Today is about being a Grammie, and Ollie. LOL They will be up next vacation.
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
