busy being

Sorry, not posting for a while. All is well, but I am taking a break. Painting, thinking, eating, you know the routine at this time of the year. Soon it will be back to my more normal routine and maybe the urge to blog will return.

I am also wondering what word to choose to live by in 2014. I think I have found the right one, but as a year is a long time to live by one word you do need to choose carefully.

Today I am grateful for options.

another detail from new painting series

Today I am also grateful for paper and paint. 

on task

I've been without internet (other than on a phone which I was not sure how to use for a while).

Day one was OK, I was expecting the internet back any moment.

Day two I was a bit fidgety, not really happy about it.

Day three I was totally having withdrawal symptons, showing me how serious my cyber addiction was.

Day four I was through the worst of it, coping quite well.

Day five I was thinking I could do with much less internet.

Day six I was planning to cancel my contract.

Day seven... I was desparate to sit at my computer and see what I had been missing.

Could I cope? Not really, but the experience was good. In fact it's been great for me.

I might disappear more often.

It is far better to create than surf the net admiring other creations.

Balance, Kay, balance is what you need.

Today I am grateful for poetry and friends.
