100 Days - 100 Dreams: 22

I wish I would Remember to Commit to:

painting more
 exercising more
reading more

eating less
bitching less
"wasting" less time

hugging more
listening more
hoping more

talking less ( but only a little less)
making less messes
quitting less

writing more letters
reaching out to more people
hosting more togetherness

Enough "pressure" for now - but a start to the list.

Time to choose another "30 Day Personal Challenge." And commit to following through. Oh, that Following Through....

May your day hold Joy and Good Amazements -

100 Days - 100 Dreams: 21

I complain because I have "no time" to draw.
Today I am finding time.
Because my heart needs to Draw.

Subject: Small cast resin polar bear

Art Supplies:
Prismacolor colored pencils
Strathmore Toned Gray sketchbook (5.5" x 8.5")
Black pen

The eye and arm are tentative. Yet one must begin.

The more you look the more you see. And,  yes, I decided from the start to make notes on the drawing. This way I don't feel pressed to create something that might be matted and framed. This practice is for PRACTICE. Learning. Relearning. Sort of like a musician practicing scales and fingering.

I was listening to an interview with Pema Chodron. Her "smile at fear" was worth the time. I am not good at smiling at fear.

This is as far as the drawing is getting tonight. It is not finished. I will keep at this bear until it has no more to teach me. Then I will draw another bear. Or a red leaf. Or a fork.

The subject is not as important as the drawing.

100 Days - 100 Dreams: 20

Today I am dreaming of More TIME.

That is all. Time for work. Time for fun. Time for nothing.

i am well.

Just BUSY at doing what I love doing - to the point where I might confess to not love doing it right now.

Hoping you are busy doing stuff you love to do. Just not TOO busy.

And - How about them Cubs?!?
