It always seems impossible
until it's done.
- Nelson Mandelai'm flying by the seat of my pants today
but i'm posting anyway.
i have no one thing in particular to share
but several things,
in no particular order,
so strap yourselves in folks...
here we go!
Books, books, and more books.
Some women can't have enough shoes,
for me, it's books.
There's a second hand place near my home
where you can get great books at great prices.
The Anne Frank book was $2.00
My kinda shopping...
i bought these books on Amazon.
Merry Early Christmas to me. ;-)
and when i read these words in the Seth Godin book,
my heart felt at home.
i love breaking rules,
so this fits right into my master plan. ;-)
a little bit of art.
i alternate between painting and writing
only these days,
i seem to be reading more than anything.
Course, there's Christmas too.
i never get stressed out about that,
but i have started preparing, here and there.
Some women have everything done like in October.
i say women, because most men are never that anal.
At least not the men i know.
i wait till the first sign of a snowflake
before i even think of Christmas.
If ever i live in the South,
where there is no snow at all,
i'll be screwed.
the mess on my table in the studio this morning...
another mess, on another table...
i ordered this book. Love Austin Kleon
and i loved his book STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST.
If you're not familiar with him,
check him out.some of his blackout poetry
which i love as well.
and of course, this was written JUST for me.
(i'm writing it, i'm writing it!) ;-)
love this (by Caroline Paul)
Reading some of Susan Sontag's journals as well...
Love her writing....
and her art...
i avoid energy drainers
like facebook or Pinterest
or too much TV (especially the news)
or toxic people
or blogs that are just too shiny & sparkly
and make me feel
like my life is crap
whenever i visit them.
i need to be reminded now and then
that we're all tainted.
We're all broken
in one way or another,
no matter how hard some people
try to pretend that they're not.
What are your energy drainers?
Can you identify some of them?
With the new year around the corner,
maybe it's a good time
to think about getting rid of some of them...
even if only slowly at first.
Better slow than not at all.
Susannah Conway has a free workbook called
unravelling the year ahead 2014
You might want to check it out
and brace yourself for a good year.
Love & lollipops!
