Something Else

I have found that sometimes on the way to one place, we discover another instead. Today that happened. The show was pretty quiet and it seemed like, “oh why bother.” Then I got to the end of the day and realized that quite a lot actually happened. I was able to spend time talking with people I really enjoyed and found to be hugely interesting. Because it was not busy, I was able to spend more time with the few people that did come in and really talk to them. I got to do a trade for some fantastic warm cashmere sweaters that I would not have been able to purchase otherwise. And I was able to figure out what to do with a painting that was lacking something. It was a great show in all because everything I experienced I can use later. A different outcome is sometimes the best thing for where you are right now. I mean really, how important are people anyway?

wild ideas

sometimes(ok every morning) I wake up and have new wild ideas.  Why do I get these ideas that seem to come from somewhere outside of me. Is it because I am an artist and am open to new ideas.  They come and I wake up all shaky with can’t wait to do them , jitters. My poor husband has to listen to the latest barrage of ideas to start his day.  After being married to me for so long , he does not get upset and think I am asking him to do anything. He has learned that my ideas do not have to involve him immediately, He has a good week or so before that happens.  I am married to the most perfect man for me.  The total opposite of my energy so that I do not go off the deep end. Even though I try every day to sky dive, He is a net.
I would love to have someone out there write a comment below – and tell me if you ever have this experience. What is it like for you to wake up? tell me.
