Trees are trees and words are words, at first glance appearing to look and sound the same. A recurring voice says it’s all been said and done before, what can you contribute? To be honest, I’m not sure. Another voice quietly tells me it could be something, so with some ink and time maybe I’ll … Continue reading It Could Be Something
Quick note on Ruby: she's furbaby niece and also my best friend's Airedale who just turned one last week and will likely be seen regularly because she's a ham and definitely has learned what a camera is. Back to the title! I might be pushing my luck a bit here. My instructor texted me earlier … Continue reading A… clinic??
"Just waiting on the other shoe to drop" refers to anticipating a typically unpleasant event. It comes from the crowded living quarters on the east coast when, at night, an upstairs neighbor would be retiring for the night and drop a shoe on the thinly-insulated floor serving as a ceiling to the person below, probably … Continue reading Dropped shoes
Fate whispers to the warrior "You cannot withstand this storm." And the warrior whispers back, "I am the storm." - not sure of source I really like how L over at Viva Carlos has a quote at the beginning of all her posts. If I had enough pearls of wisdom on hand, I would totally … Continue reading Ya know what they say about plans…
Something I recently noticed about myself is that I tend to look for inspiration on the internet. I search and dig for clues as to what My Next Opportunity should be based on articles I read or successful strangers I stumble upon through podcasts and videos. There have been countless leads I've found through the … Continue reading You won’t find it like that
It seems like I should write about the fact that I'm helping move my sister into her apartment tomorrow for her senior year of college. Or that I'm going to a narcolepsy conference this weekend (I'm excited for this - I learned such a great deal at the one last year and hope the same … Continue reading What do I want?
Not long after publishing two days ago, I got my first like. There's always that giddy feeling of someone else acknowledging whatever you just threw out on the internet. Before long, there was another one. More affirmation! And then a third, a fourth - I found myself going back and forth between clicking the little … Continue reading Chasing stats and other distractions
I decided it was time for a change, because I'm not going anywhere for the time being. That means new layout, new post, new tagline that I'll change when I come up with something better... and taking my (full) name off of what I'm writing because, although I'm aware anyone with enough time could track … Continue reading A new look doesn’t change how loud my keyboard is…
I happen to be a hyper-aware person and am typically not someone who can be "got." When I gather myself up and decide to paint at home, I've always got one ear and eye on the two doors in our spare room. I'm almost never home completely alone, so I'm always anticipating my mother or … Continue reading Spooked
Honestly, the lion has nothing to do with the title. Beyond the fact that I hate searching out stock photos just to get some clicks, but I also intensely desire having a visual of some sort (if it's my own). Thus, a lion drawing, sketched from a picture... I did not take. Silent nearly 6 … Continue reading All in Good Time
