Good Morning Sunshine! Life!

Sunshine through a window! Love sun coming in!

Life has a way of catching us up! It certainly has me. I didn’t know what I was in for, no one would!

At this point in time, it has been 2 years and 5 months since my husband Thomas died. Looking back, I am doing very well with life now. The first year I took time to mourn my loss and think about what I wanted life to be without Thomas.

I decided to move to Rhode Island. This turned out to be more complicated than I imagine, as it mean breaking it down so I could deal with “things”. It has put a hold on being in a working studio and doing Shibui Found Image Art. And it has put a hold on writing the manual and the Good Morning Sunshine Blog.

At this time I have a bit of time to catch up and simply be present with myself again.

I have run across a program on Gaiam TV titled Happiness For No Reason. There is a book by the same name and a workbook. i recommend these. But there is a great benefit to listening to the program each day for a while at least. The reason why is to have it stick into long-term memory. Its been a very long time since I have felt so good, and am really happy each day! Each day I listen there are more points taken in! Things I did not catch the day before! This surprised me, but then I embraced this as I was taking in more. I am afraid it was Thomas who had the photographic memory!

Another benefit was learning about forgiveness. Something I have wrestled with. Discussion about forgiveness is a part of the program. I have come away with new incites and understanding about very old issues, my own role in the outcome, and how to feel truly happy!

This is just what I needed to move forward; changing life up. I haven’t lost Thomas! He is in my head and heart! I am good! Truly good!

When you lose someone you love you will get triggered.I reason loving Thomas should hurt! However, I am not dead. I have others to love and take care of. I have my art and what I want to do with it! So will anyone else.

Best wishes to all! Love and hugs! Pejj Nunes

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
