Art Every Day Month Ends - Creavity Continues

I have had a busy busy time this month, creating like crazy. I barely even mentioned my primary art forms - performing and prose writing. I am thrilled to report, though, this week I am in tech week for my final play of the year - and after that, I am going to be directing a play in February and then focusing on my daughter, Katherine, who is leaving for college in the Fall.
There will be roles when I elect to act again. I just need time to be with her.
So - this art every day month awakened my visual art self. On this last day, I focused on photography and a bit of poetry.
I added favorite couple photos, and remember to go to Julie Unplugged for the whole story.
Thank you for reading!

Phew on November 29

Closing night for "Beyond Therapy" went great, even though I was running like a headless chicken for much of the hours preceding our final curtain.

I will miss this cast very much. It was truly a fine experience.

AND I created throughout the day. My favorite photos of the day are featured here, for you... and to read my musings on the Julie Unplugged blog, please take a moment to visit.

Have you ever made a leaf angel?

Samuel did, yesterday - with a little bit of Mommy coaxing-coaching.

(He is such a good sport!)

Day 27: Grateful for Art with Samuel and Dinner with Friends-Like-Family

Beloved Ones:

I continue to be humbled by the comments on the poem I shared yesterday as a part of ReadWritePoem.Org's "Get Your Poem On" prompt. Thank you for those of you would read and commented and if you haven't had the chance and would like to read, please visit here now.

Today's Art Every Day post... oh, it made me smile. Making hand art with Samuel. Sweet moments like this don't come along everyday... or maybe, with intention, they do and they will.

Something to think about and "create my way into" today... and tomorrow... and the next and the next and the next....
I am grateful you are here and you are reading.....

Memory Showers bring new Art

I spent much of yesterday and most of this morning bathed in recollection. I am grateful I have learned how to take what could be debilitating sadness and turn it into art, instead.

Check out what I did on my Julie Unplugged Blog

Enjoy your holiday! Be blessed and be a blessing!

Day 25: It was Sludgy. Beyond Sludgy at times.

But I did manage to create another piece of hand art, anyway.

Read about my adventures in sludge turned to cuddles on my Julie Unplugged blog.
I just wrote, just now, a modernized haiku, more on the sludge so I will "premiere" it here:
Grey. Sludge. Not. Today.
Did. You. Get. to. Work. On. Time?
Love. Amidst. Rubble.

Today's Morning Pages: Tomorrow

Two haiku flowed off my pen and onto my morning pages notebook this morning.

hand held wheel barrow
Empty the tears she's crying
Salt stains the dry soil

Nudge Samuel from bed
"The bus will be here real soon!"
Sleep rubs off his eyes

I uploaded today's Art Every Day Month post, miracles abounding. I am so grateful I took on this challenge.

Want to see? Visit here.

I am trying to learn how this blog works, but its primary function is to link you back to my usual blogs while making it easier for me to post at BlogSpot, which always freaked out when I tried to leave comments in the past.

You know the saying from Einstein about insanity. I decided, "Awww, heck, create a simple blog presence and link back to the "Real!" stuff... or the "other" real stuff.

Have a glorious day.

After the Weekend...

I am having a challenge getting started on this Monday Morning.

I am going to use my sure fire method for change - some movement, some music, some cinnamon and sugar toast. :-)

I love this self portrait I took yesterday - what do you think?

And finally - for my Art Every Day meanderings, this is the link to my Day 23 Meanderings.

I created this Blog to be a Portal to my other blogs, especially for Blogger Users

I have had a sort of difficult time negotiating the comment posting on Blogger and Blogspot. Instead of fighting it, I decided to create this blog in order to link to my other blogs... and places of creativity - in hopes people will have an easier way to find my work.

So, without any further ado:

Today, I created some Zentangle Hand Art.
