I'd really like to start walking in the morning again...but it's SO cold and windy...and the worst part is that is is damp...bone-chilling cold. not good ole' dry cold.
complain, complain.

Two days of work left this week and then the New Year...2012...wonder what 2012 is going to bring?
I've done 3 new painting sketches...two of which have to be finished ( yeah, the paintings) by the 5th, and ready to hang since I'm showing at Lotus Moon again this month. I'm so ecited that my friend Cheryl is coming down to be at the show and do Tarot readings. Frank and the guys (who loving called themselves The Three Musketeers...but who will be knows as MojoVishnu to the public from now on...damn, I have to finish a logo this weekend too!) are playing my show...yay! Good way to ring in the New Year ( even if it is on the 6th)

Inspiration has been good right now for some reason...despite the cold and the 8 hours of boring work every day ( post-holiday sucks at a flower shop). I have BUGS in my head again...I want to start painting lots of insects and bees and birds again....FM bought me some great magazines for Christmas, and the trip to Lititz with Mom, which was so fun, made me want to produce, produce, produce!

But now off to work...

geting ready for the new year...

...whatever that means. it's all just time. fake little markers that give a false sense of hope for a new start. none of this is fact it is a great even i use...eventhough i'm not sure why we all wait til 'the new year' for a 'fresh start'. you can have a fresh start any day...even march 26th...or november 21st. it doesn't really matter.

i think we should all pick ANOTHER day to have a fresh start during the year. or even, three. three is a good number.

what days would you pick?

so this is what i think about in the morning. i have 30 minutes before i have to go back to work, and since i'm working at one of the satellite stores today i'll be all alone with no break from 9-5. it gets kind of lame. but it IS a job. ( let me just say here...i love my coworkers and my managers ...but i very much dislike the fact that i do nothing but answer phones, place orders and sweep floors all day.).

So, that is enough complaining for the day after the day after christmas.
I had a wonderful, magical holiday weekend. saw so many friends and family...even a surprise visit to out neighbors, Bethany and Jose ( and the whole bright fun adorable family). Billy and Marta came to stay the night from D.C., and as usual the cozy Christmas Eve at my moms and gifts at Dad with the whole family the next morning.

But I digress....

I got an e-mail from my friend Highway Hannah this morning that made me think...

Hiya lovin.

I hope your xmas was great and fat.

How is everything going down there?...

...Updates? New plans? "

 my friend...the short answer would be...oh yes! cups-full! but where to begin?
