Good Morning Sunshine!

Keeping on track.

Coffee at the right! A new cup! Reads “Hello Sring!” The color is very pleasing to the senses too. A soft turquoise with the bottom a soft gray. I have this same turquoise in my appliances. After Tom died I changed the appliances, this gave me new memories of my kitchen. It reminded me of “Now it’s time for a new path forward.” I found this a simple view of how my life was changing. It certainly has.

I wanted to influence that change. My approach has worked for me. I have not talked with many other women or men who have lost their loved ones. My experience seems to be different. I think taking that year to reflect, I allowed myself to feel my feelings, and I took the time to come into being present with myself. This made a big difference. I think how I remembered Thomas had a big part in the outcome too. Reflecting on how loving our relationship had been. How his support and nurturing had brought me to the point I am at. I was very well-loved.

I will always miss Thomas. But he was a big part of my life, a very special time. Yes. I wish it had been for a lot longer. It hurts because there was this great wonderful love between us! This is how I should feel. But there is a place for it, in my heart where I can take care of it tenderly and still go on with my own life.

I am thinking of these things as I prepare for yet another new path. Thoughts of moving so to be closer to my daughter and her family. This will be a very good thing. It will mean leaving this home. I am ok inside about that.

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
