Today was pretty quiet, I tried to stay on the couch most of the day. I was told to take the next 14 days easy, and not to push-pull- or lift 5 pounds plus….Do you know that almost everything is more than 5 pounds? And I used to think I didn’t do much all day, I take that back…..This is harder than I would have thought! But I have a Blue Ray Player that has wireless on it, so I can even watch You Tube on my Big TV! its pretty darn neat! I also watch Netflix, and they have many other things you can watch as well! WOW! Technology is scary and amazing at the same time!
I started in a “Mail Art” group on Art Geeks, I think its pretty cool to send my art out the door as a big postcard! How neat it will be to receive a bunch and hang them all on a board together, Or to make them part of my art Journal in their own plastic protectors of course! I wouldn’t mind swapping a home made journal now and then either! Have you ever seen the ones Mary Anne Kensington makes?? they are pretty cool! she has them on you tube! I make all my Art Journals, I just buy really big water color paper pads and cut them in half and bind them up, or I fold them in half and sew them. I like using the watercolor paper for its durability for any kind of media.
Today was my birthday, for me its just another day in my life. My husband and I don’t really “celebrate” any one day, for anything (meaning most celebrated holidays/special days) We Just like spur of the moment stuff, It has really worked for us because most of the time we would not have the money on “that” given day or time and could not afford gifts…there were times we charged our kids Christmas stuff and boy did that get us in trouble….so now that they are grown, we Just get what we need or want when we need or want it, if we don’t have the cash we wait until we do. AND we never get in trouble for “forgetting” a special day.
I am really confused or disturbed? I really don’t know the right word to use, but I don’t go to “church”. I am a spiritual person….but I find it odd that every “religious” group like Catholic, Baptist, ECT… anyway there are some that say THIS is the only TRUE religion and “our” God is the “only” God……I really don’t get it….if they are “ALL” right…then “WHO” is wrong? I know…its a Who’s On First Query, But all the same….I don’t discuss religion with people mostly because I don’t want to argue what I personally believe. I once read that if you have to go door to door, or Try and convince others about what YOU believe, that you yourself don’t believe it enough. Another thing….WHY are there so many different “religions” so to speak? why cant there just be ” I believe in something out there Bigger than me” ? It almost seem like a war of some sort to see who is better, Just like trying to look better than the next guy, or have nicer things….I just want to be happy. I think that most people WANT to be happy and cant find that happiness or something…..I really don’t know and don’t have the answers, and don’t argue about what any person believes, I CAN say that if you believe in “God” and that makes you “Happy”, then that is what is important for “YOU”. Don’t worry about what someone else thinks of that, it doesn’t matter, but at the same time, It like color or hair…If your favorite color is yellow, that does not mean that you have to try and make that MY favorite color, and if you think its wrong that I shave off all my hair, that is YOUR opinion….right? so why is what we believe spiritually any different? I really don’t need an answer, I just have one of those minds that cant sit still, and its like chaos in Here sometimes! I also think it would be awesome to take pictures with our eyes! so there ya go! how many times do you “MISS” that perfect picture! someone will invent something that works with that conception. mark my words.
So what was your day like? do have a streaming mind too? does one thought run into the next? do you often wonder how others DON’T have a mind like this? or do “you” have the quiet mind? Or perhaps you want to swap some mail art?
