Share Your World – September 25, 2017

Here I am on September 28 going back to the 25th, just so that I can share with Cee and all of you. I’ve been debating with myself about sharing or posting another rant, chiding chiding chiding people for reacting instead of thinking – but I decided not to be a grump. At least not today. Tomorrow – who knows.

What is your favorite outdoor activity? I guess it would be walking on the beach, because the ocean sounds have such a calming effect. In my younger years, it probably would have been riding a bike. Otherwise, my favorite outdoor “activity” would be sitting in a comfy chair on one of my decks with a glass of wine and my furry girls. “Activity” is subject to interpretation, you know.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger? That depends on who the driver would be if I was not. I do better with women drivers because they are usually less aggressive then men, and less likely to follow other vehicles what I deem to be too closely. If it’s a man driving, I belong in the back seat, because I am more a passenger seat driver than I am a back seat driver when I am not the actual driver. Got it?

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be? 1. For harmony, peace, and tolerance. Wait, does that qualify for this question, because it’s not really for me alone? But yet it is – because if the world had more of these things, I would have less anxiety and irritants. 2. More ambition and less proficiency at procrastinating or ignoring. 3. This one is purely selfish – enough money to travel more.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Here again, very little is inspiring me these days. Although, the pleasure I get from eating a slice of bread I make with Herbes de France (or Provence), toasted, slathered with cream cheese and peach jam, inspires me to make more of that bread. I appreciated a couple of conversations I’ve had with friends this week, where I felt free to say how I feel about current events, without fear of being shut down.

I’ve been doing a little more inking – mostly on tiles, because really that’s my favored substrate – as if I was going to do something with any of them. Maybe. Anyway, my themes seem to run a bit dark, or feature downhill scenes – Slippery Slopes so to speak. Probably a reflection of my state of mind these days. Here are two of them which will be finished to make them suitable for use as trivets, if anyone wants a trivet.

Despite my lack of inspiration or my wishes for more, truly I do have enough, and I hope that you feel you do too.

    I really like your last title you painted. And yes, we have enough. Let’s enjoy the last days of sun 😀

    I love that second tile. I laughed at your answer about being a driver or passenger. I’m the same way so yes, I got it. 🙂


  3. I am with you on the beach location. We could all use some less tense times these days. Keep enjoying your inks!

    “‘Activity’ is subject to interpretation, you know.” No truer words, my dear.

    I’d love to have the opportunity to walk along a beach on a regular basis, but *alas* there are no beaches anywhere near here. Your artwork is beautiful, btw. The colors and images are soothing to me.

    My favorite outdoor activity is wandering with a camera. walking, biking, driving, whatever. And speaking of driving…well, I’ ALWAYS more comfortable driving than being driven. I guess it’s a control thing. I loved that last tile too…but then I went back to see the first one and found I loved that one too…similar but very different from each other. I keep forgetting to tell you that I’m going to go get a frame for the work you sent me. And hang it on a wall. People keep saying they love it, so do I!

      For me those two tiles represent nuances of the same mood about the state of things today. That “slippery slope” concept.

      I’m happy you like the painting you got.
