Happy Holidays to everyone. This is the time we really look at our lives and find the good things to cherish. Family, friends, good books, coffee, Art, paint,the smell of spring ,the crunch of fall leaves under your feet, the dog licking your face overjoyed to see you even though you were just in the bathroom for a minute., the cats snuggled up to you at night, christmas lights, fireworks, mud under your toes, laughing, rolling down a hill, hot air balloons over head, old Bette Davis Movies, netflicks with Sherlock Holmes, popcorn, warm covers, candles, children, still being loved after all these years..and learning to love deeper every day..May this year bless you with all your good things!

I think Christmas is the hardest time of year. The pressure is intense-to give your kids the best stuff, to FEEL all holiday like. This time of year is when I take stock of my life and face some things that need to be faced and make me tense. It seems all the bug a boos in your life are under a microscope and intensified. Financial worries, worry about how your life is going, what you need to change, what hasn't changed even though you have tried.....its all very overwhelming........

Working on my chrsitmas card and it has turned into a book. Its going to be way expensive to copy off because of all the pages and color copying. I don't know why I have to get so elaborate-but it was fun and it meant something. I have been looking for jobs but in vain.....its kind of depressing
a. to be looking
b. to have to be looking
3. to have to give up and face the fact that it is time to do what everyone else has to, instead of making money from what you love to do

I guess that is life!!!

I am trying to just let go and paint and not worry about the outcome-seems when I can get in that zone it all works. Perhaps I should remember that for my life-let go and it will all work out.
