If you freed your heart and mind from just one less-than-stellar habit, where else would you put them to use? Maybe toward bravery, or making home-made ramen (like my soup goddess sister, Wendy), toward understanding something elusive or maybe just daydreaming of the many things you can put your newly-freed heart and mind to use on. :)
My hands are working gently at slump softening. One drawing at a time. One leave-it-all-on-the-table-in-a-heap-of-exhaustion life-drawing session at a time. Thank goodness I now live in the land of caffeinated goodness on every corner.
This week's PDX recommendation is Sweedeedee, where you can start your day with a savory porridge and a slice of honey whiskey bread. And where the staff will dazzle you with vinyl LPs played continuously while you eat. You'll get a kick out of saying "Sweedeedee" all day long, too.

Beautiful painting as always. My resolution I put into broad terms. Just to be healthier for the long term so eat better and ride my bike. These will both pay off in aces when I take a journey with my camera to your next of the woods in June and again on 150mile bike ride I'm part of in November. Oh and one other which is try to stick to a schedule of one podcast a week. I am proud to have done 15 episodes in 2018 but they have been erratic in scheduling.

Just lovely! I see your art taking a different direction each time you post your latest creation! You are settling in to your new surroundings, and the joy you are posting in pictures makes my heart happy. You are in a new element, and it agrees with you, family makes the journey better!

oooooh Carolyn! Thank you, dear one! I am enjoying the complete freedom of following the muse and seeing where things go. There is still malarkey waiting to emerge, but for now, these life drawing sessions are thrilling my muse!!! xo

Shape, line, angle, color, contrast … and softening. Making pliable. Puddling. Yielding.

Dotty! "Making pliable" - oh. Puddling! Yes. Becoming puddled. Is that a worthy goal? Because I like it. :)
