Wow! Oh Wow!
THE WOW AND THE RABBIT HOLE
Oh wow how long has it been since I have written a post? It has been too long. oh wow I am sorry about that but, in a way things were out of my control. In a way that is. When writing a blog about working online I do explore ways to work online, and some I get into and explore them in detail. It takes me away away some times down a rabbit hole.(Now how do you get out!) Others I do a surface scan. In this big old world there are so many ways one can go.So much of it is so detailed. Steps on steps to learn to do and to explain. Sometimes you get overwhelmed with it all. So you sort and you sift, though pages of notes and a brain freeze from time to time. As I am sure if you are one who is looking or exploring working online, you will understand this whole heartedly.
MICE AND MEN
And then there are the plans of mice and men. Often stuff happens to spoil your plans or and your plans change and grow and expand and you get into something and you find it is just not for you. Now you have to take a few steps back.Wow! there you are, or should I say there I am. I guess that is the way of living life. No problem in a way. Due to the nature of my thoughts. I am positive and set back are just that a temporary set back. and then I am up and trying to figure out the next step to do. Life I love it.
CONFESSIONS OF LOVE AND THE BACK-BURNER
I must confess that most of the stuff that has happens did help and where for an other persons benefit. I feel good that I could help them. So what is a mother to do. Yes come to the aid of your children. what is a daughter to do. Help my family sure.In my mind that is what I am here to do,to a point. while they craw I help them stand. So my plans are on the back burner for a while. No sweat. it makes me happy to see what I have done for them. And so I ask or I say rather that it was good. and I am happy with that. I am still working at a job that I don’t like but it is not the end to my world and my plans for self employment.It just turns out to be a longer stay at my current job. It is good pay and I have a retirement plan in place. I know it does not for fill all my needs and desires and my passions. That’s Life.
TO CREATE OR HOW TO KILL A MOWER
I have searched and have found that I just love taking pictures and digitally changing them in an app or two. It is the creative process that I like and the end result that fills me with joy as well. With most things I do I am creative. MY mom and my family just love the way I cook in the kitchen; I do create some good dishes, neighbor and friends like my garden my yard and what I have done with it. However I must say it is looking pretty bad now. I will call it the adventures of the lawn mower again.
I was in a rush and I put the gas in the wrong location again. oh Wow not again!! So now I have to find a services who will cut it for me with one of their big mowers! LOL enough said about that.(head down walking down the hall of shame). and I say again Wow! oh Wow! Smile, No fear it will get back in order, my nephew who was helping me with mowing the lawn broke his wrist and could not do it for a while,( he had to get a screw in the bone ouch!) so little old me said I will tackle this jungle. Well the grass was to high for my little bit of mower and the thing stop working! So I thought it was empty of gas. I had so much to do that day and I was just going to knock it out! Hum! Sure, right. So I did not read the signs on the mower due in part that my glasses kept falling off, and put the gas in the oil location. Does that not sound so familiar. Yes oh yes it does. oh boy.See lawn mower post! white smoke all over the place! Hot dang!
THE WRITTEN WORD LONG WINDED
I like to write and I love doing this blog it is creative. Sure it has rules of how it should be done. I don’t like most rules but I see where at times it is necessary! I try to follow them but sometimes oops!. Well not today no pictures to draw you in. And it is on the longish side. You all know my battle of being somewhat long in wind and writing. Well I have not been here for a while so please bear with me. I guess the gurus will say you have just lost some of your readers since it is so long. You know their attention span is short, short short.And then there is the mobile pages to consider!! Am I perfect who is perfect, what is perfect? Not I for sure! Do I ever what to be perfect? In my dreams he is perfect! And where is he? oh well.you get the picture, perfect is not a name or a person it is an idea. Is there the concept of perfect in its imperfection? Hum I guess I will think on that tangent/notion later.
THE LONG AND SHORT OF THINGS
So the long and short of this post is that the plans I made for turning this blog into a website is still a go, it is just going to take little old me longer to do so. The good news about that is I will start to write more stuff here on the regular, since I just love to do this, and I will continue to build on the art site that I have in partnership with fineartamerica. If you want you can go view some of the work I have there. Yes I have been busy!and I am not done! (http://susantownsend.artistwebsites.com) View art work not galleries and if you want to buy,then be my guest. Also I must say there are some pretty good artist there; so view their work as well at fineartamerica.com. We tweet about each others work sometimes and share it with other tweeters and followers. Art can be an investment. But you all know this right? Smile.
WHO WILL BE NEXT
You don’t know who is going to make it big in the art world so take advantage of them now when they are not. It like buying penny stocks. They can be in a growth” phase, and they have room to grow and improve. The value therefore can rise. You have a greater return on the potential at a lower cost. You can also buy more at this low-cost. Now if it does not do well you have not lost a great deal of money. But Art is more tangible than penny stocks to me. It looks nice on a wall and adds warmth to a room,a conversation piece and you can still sell it or give it as a gift. So buy art! smile.
CLOSING WAIT FOR IT
Now for the big close!! Wow! I was so sad to hear of Maya Angelou’s death this week, I loved her mind and the way she lived, and the way she brought ideas and stories and her poems to life and made them run though your mind and into your heart; as she put it when talking about life and writing. That is what I love so much about the arts; any form of it. This is why I will play with them all. my photos, my writing and cooking and the art of loving my family myself and the world at large.
WORDS ABOUT THE WOMEN
I think those folks who are a liver of life who have so many experiences and passions are living a life full and never on empty.
They love life with all its expressions and faces and skins, for we are truly only one in the sun and the scope of what life is truly! When I think of her she warms my heart for there was a lot of thrush and wisdom behind those eyes and in that soul. I am sad but not sad for she lived a rich life.
Maya Angelou is an example for us all.30 years my senior I only which I can be as warm and as rich as she was with in the arts and life itself.
We all have something to share with the world and she was great with the sharing of her life. and that is what I wish for.How do I turn the words on a page into light that fill a mind,a heart that brings forth a meaning a wish,a feeling and love. And to do that same thing with in an image. To look at a picture or art for a long time and see something in it every time,different, new, a favorite memory, to evoke passion.A changeable meaning or message to a different viewer each time.That is art.She had this kind of ability.it was a smart way to show her love and to tell that story that was within.
THE END AND THE QUOTE
So you know I always leave with a Quote and this one is from Ms. Angelou in honor of her life and the women herself.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
and one more from her.
Life loves the liver of it.
Rest in peace Maya Angelou. Be well.
