A great album to drive my painting, Macy Gray's debut is wonderful. It's one of those softly philosophical records, with a couple moments deep about Life's end. Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere" is another, beautiful and thoughtful with awesome music. If you watch the video, listen to the lyrics.
Anyway, my brain, I'll tell ya. This morning I practically jumped outta bed, with more energy than I've had for awhile. I tried Afrin yesterday and apparently it helped me sleep better. I got so excited about doing my art, about our possible move, and about two new possible projects involving my Vinyl Art I was pacing around the house talking to myself. Both projects involve publishing, one in print, the other digitally. These are thoughts with no substance yet. All potential. So we'll see.
Then, after painting this piece, my energy drained. My focus blurred. Angels and demons, the emotions with which I breathe Life into this body, messing with me. Ahh, the rollercoaster of Life. I'm still very excited about what's going on, but I just can't concentrate on it right now. So, if you want to read a more coherent blog post about direction in Life that is very inspiring, check this out. Please just read the whole thing. Ken's a really nice guy, and this is brilliant.
