Sit with it
Sit next to the pain
Invite it for tea
I’m not meant to get up early. You see, I’m not a good sleeper. I can get in bed and fall asleep without too much trouble, but I often wake up much too early. Sometimes I can go back to sleep, other times, not so much.
This year I have work meetings on Mondays and Tuesdays. One at 9 am, the other at 10. Are they trying to kill me? I think. that they are.
I was annoyed at the world today. The sky was gray. The air was cold. The pile of snow in my parking space made getting out of the car a little dangerous.
In the afternoon the document I was working on didn’t save properly, so I had to redo a half-hour’s worth of work. After I clocked out for the day I realized I forgot to do something. Oh well, it will have to wait until tomorrow.
I want to spend the day making things with the Assembley app.
I shouldn’t have looked at Twitter yesterday. I should’t have looked again today.
I want chocolate, but I’m limiting my sugar intake to around 25 grams a day. Sometimes eating popcorn eases my craving for sweets. I might be too lazy to make popcorn.
The world’s a mess and I’m in a mood.
Cloudy skies are expected tomorrow.
Taking time for fitness
For me, exercising as soon as I get home from work is the way to go. I can do something at home or go use the

I got an Instant Pot for Christmas. Now I have to learn how to use it and find recipes that don’t call for 15 ingredients.
Art for sanity
I want to revisit art journaling this year. The book I’m altering is turning into an art journal. I had a thought that I could turn books into journals and sell them on Etsy.
I don’t like how messy the art journal process is. Things would be so much easier if I could quit my job and do art and jewelry full-time. That is something to put on the vision board. That’s another to-do!
I could focus more on digital art, but I like working with real objects. I want to add digital scrapbook paper and embellishments to my Etsy inventory. More to-dos!
You took it for granted, didn’t you?
Well, now it’s gone.
Why won’t you move on?
Get a new thing.
Be different. Be still. Be silent.
Go inside and don’t look out.
Look in not out.
Sometimes a poem doesn’t come. That is a fact of life. So you throw words at birds and hope they take flight.
I have admired altered books for several years. I tried my hand at it once, but I didn’t get far due to lack of knowledge and skill.
Last week I picked up the how-to book I bought umpteen years ago and learned that I don’t need a rocket science degree to get started altering a book.
Now I’m on my way. I hope to have a meaningful experience as I create something new from this old crime book.
Maybe I can make it a true crime themed piece. We’ll see what happens.
I made this piece with the Art Set app three years ago.
It’s funny how I like my art better once I’ve stepped away from it.
This one makes me think of outer space and a storm within the earth’s atmosphere coming together.
Space is only an illusion, isn’t it? The universe is really nonlocal. I’m ready to accept that paradigm. I’m ready for the frequency of my vibration to increase.
