Wow, it's a whole new thing! Bloggin'. I am a blog virgin, it's all pretty new & exciting to me. I quit my part time job last week and have pretty much been sleeping all week, the Dreaming is just too good. But today I woke up and realized I had too much to do to worry about all that. So I am on a new kick to finally read and follow the book "the artist's way", by Julia Cameron...(i've only been carrying it around since 1992) I do that a lot w/ books, do i think that i will just soak in the knowledge via osmosis?? or what??  any who, her big thing is morning pages, writing every day to RETRIEVE your creativity. So this could be a good way to do it. Plus, I like adding pictures to go along with ones mood. 

I want to do one of those pacts with myself... like - create at least one drawing, painting, collage or just taking a great picture every day and post some on here. I like that idea. This is a picture of my peace flags last winter with a great tree outside my porch. This year those flags are looking pretty beat up having gone thro the winter from Hell here in wisconsin. 

Today was Fat Tuesday. I put on some nola music and second lined my sorry butt around the house in honor of mardi gras. Antoinette K-doe died last nite i hear, MG morning, mmm  mmm... and Snooks Eaglin last week. Sad... I miss being in New Orleans every day. Came back to my home town after Katrina. It was a good place to get reconnected with my spiritual side and work out some kinks in my brain. But it is not New Orleans. People who have not lived there, well, they just don't get it. That's all i can say.... and I think having lived there for about 25 years it's ingrained in me now. I couldn't make it for MG, but will go for 3 weeks for Jazz Fest, as I have missed 3 of them, the most EVER since 1976. I don't know if I want to move back there tho, I'll see because it is such a part of me and I have many good buddies there. But lately I have been craving a TROPICAL BEACH. (You go thro this brutal of a winter without a car, and you too will crave a change towards a cabana with swaying palms, climbing bougainvillea  & a little jimmy buffet on the juke box.) Yes you will. 

But for now, until i can figure it out I make a pledge to MAKE MORE ART!!! FOCUS!!!! and Have Fun.
