Allowing my imagination to go where it will…
I recently experienced a rejection which is par for the course for any serious artist, and I allowed myself a bit of pouting time and then done. Also coincidental, this email message: “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.’ **Eckhart Tolle
I know, thats a bit scroogey.
Its true, that is how I feel about it. Stressed out people on busy roads and germ filled air planes, packed parking lots with peeps carrying debt ridden credit cards, does not equal joy or magic. The magic comes in January when the credit card balances jump from here to there and money needs to be pulled out of some magician’s hat, and lots of it.
We tried to keep it as low key as possible. I do like it to be fun for children.
While I don’t buy into the myth and religious aspects of the holiday I do enjoy having a tree. The smell, the nostalgia. I decorate it with art that people have given to me and that makes the tree meaningful. Its different, and has its own peculiar beauty.
On this tree see works by Lelainia Lloyd, Diane Moore, Jac Myerscho, Cynjon Noah, Jen Minnis, Horrible Sweet, Shain Erin, Cathy CUllis, Deb Galcik, Lisa Martin, Renee Troy, Shari Enge, Susan Haskell, me, Karenann Young, Carla Naron, Raven, Maripat Doyle Oberg, Junker Jane, Dollygagging, Kerry Kate and others.
I did list new ornies on tricijoy.etsy.com and will start another batch tomorrow for those readers who are watching.
Went to target today to get lights for the tree and two strings don’t work right out of the box, grrrrr I despise having to return things. Bought two jingle bell collars for my two pugs and one of them doesnt fit, have to return that Pugs have fat necks. Squishy, fat, kissable necks!
