So today I had a crazy cool idea that I can't seem to let go of... I want to have an art showing/sale opportunity in my ghetto, I mean home. I have a couple friends who are makers and they would have to be IN it with me. We would all invite all our friends and a few would come and would buy items from us and drink wine and visit and generally have a great artful time. It would be a one-night show. Maybe before Christmas.
In theory...doesnt it sound fun? In reality.. I'd be crazytown prior to the event saying things like 'WTF would I do this for??' and 'What is wrong with me?' and you know.... general rage.
But maybe in January?? Theres nothin going on in January. Could be really cool. a 2017 sort of cool.
So I'm thinking. Mulling. Friends, would you come??
Today is November 5 and the weather was positively lovely. Windows open! This was supposed to be my last week of work...and technically, it was. I didn't quite finish everything inventory update wise so I will go in one more day next week. However, I have completed another season.
The Cubs won the world series!!! What an beautiful thing that was. There are so many creative inspiring people out there!!
Now. Onto Barnwords! I plan to do a lot of different things this coming winter. Big plans! I have found that I need to have lists, goals,and ideas on paper to feel proficient. I am hopeful and excited to create.
Unfortunately, my life is uneasy these days. This insane election has affected me in the core of my being. I am sickened and sad that in our beautiful country there are people that support and think like Donald Trump. I am struggling to feel ok with the fact that some of my neighbors and even some associates (no friends of mine could possibly align with his agenda and be friends of mine) could harbor that level of hatred and intolerance for others. I have been consciously staying off of FB and if it weren't for Barnwords I would just deactivate, as not to see/read the vile garbage that's posted on the daily. The sad thing is, becoming aware that there are so many people who have these prejudices. I feel as if there is a cloud ever present over my head these days and I don't even know if it will dissipate with the advent of the election. All I can do is hope and pray that somehow things get better.
One moment at a time.
