Good Morning Sunshine! Update and apology for going missing!

I am sorry for disappearing! I can only offer that this move has been complex. Moving to Rhode Island and not getting back has been the problem. I have been here in Maine and finally, made significant in-roads to clear and clean the house, and prepare it for sale in the spring. It helps to remember that I do not have to be a superwoman! Thomas died a little more than 2 years ago. My daughter and I have been working together to make things happen here and in Rhode Island where we rent a house. Later we will buy or build.

The process of moving, and learning out the things Thomas owned, loved, and then there is his artwork___there is a lot of it!

It has been emotional but only a bit, not terribly so. I remain pretty balanced. I want to change life up, live differently, and not just lug the past around. You can’t have both if you want sanity. If you want to move forward. This means giving things to people earlier and returning things to Tom’s family (his brother and his kids) that were his. Keep things but not everything. There are things to simply change up. I would like to buy some different things. When you marry you compromise when you buy things for the house.

Being single? That is something I have never done because I married right out of high school. being single I can focus on how I want to be, and what I want to do to move me toward my goals with my art especially! And write the manual. Have a plan. Get settled so I can live in new ways. I heard or read something interesting. The idea was as we get older time flies! So it seems! But it turns out this is because what we do becomes so familiar to us, so____do something new, different, and time will feel fuller and like there is more of it! I want to test that idea!

Taking new paths means an adventure. Looking at things in new ways is a great idea! Not buying into self-talk that leads you nowhere! That voice in our heads is not who we are or have to be. It is just a voice! It is our minds predicting, and playing the word game that can lead us into the land of pros and cons, and relying on that. In doing so your not feeling the world around you! You’re not getting to the heart of living well. You’re just responding to what becomes overthinking. At least this is what it feels like! I want to be different.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is 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
