You know, this has been a weird summer. Just odd and strange and it is going too fast. Sigh. I am feeling more than slightly unsettled by the whole thing, and there just isn't much I can do about it. More life things have come about this week, nothing that is shocking or life changing - but it is just another example of the universe telling you you are certainly not in charge of your life.
In less than a week it will be August, I will have a string of company coming, I will be traveling a little bit and then (insert both silent and hysterical screaming) the school year will begin. I am getting more and more resistant to the thought, so I know that within 5 years I will be teaching my last year. Not sure of the timing on that, so don't go around and pass rumors people. There is enough of that silliness around, just don't participate.
Once I get there I'll be fine, but as with positive anticipation, the negative is also very strong. Gah. Anyway, on a positive note, I think I have found a place to hang some photos for sale. I really never intended to do that in my life, but (remember that universe thing from above) I have had a few sales that were totally unsolicited so maybe I will give it a try. I just need to figure out what I should get printed, etc. Gallery wrap, canvas wrap, etc. If it doesn't work out I will have some photos to hang at my house or gifts or whatever. :)
Then the framing issue, which I detest doing, but the gallery wrap thing might solve that whole problem.
Anyway, I am investigating that. It is interesting when things appear before me and I am actually alert enough to understand that **this is a sign, Debi**.
I NEED to finish a few parts of my house this week so I can have company and not stress out over the remnants of this cleaning binge I have had. And there are some things upstairs that need to leave my house, so I have to get it all to thrift shops or the transfer station. I hate to use every minute of my last week to myself cleaning the freaking house, but that seems to be what this summer has turned into. This could be part of my discontent!
Anyway, one of my goals today is to get another Portland day recorded- this is always time consuming, and this time I have to use all phone pictures for the latter half of the day as I left my camera in the car for the museum. sometimes you just have to do that.
I better get on with it here, my coffee cup needs a refresher. Have a wonderful day and be sure to find time for some joy.
