Today’s Eclipse….

was not all that exciting after all. I didn’t even bother to try to find the special glasses. I know, I know I sound like a boring person. My tablet refuses to let me write (p-oo-per) even though I have turned off the spelling correction. -I absolutely hate this device- 

We have the best luck viewing the lunar eclipses in this location. I ambeing sarcastic. Clouds have blocked out every last lunar eclipse we have had for the last decade. So. I was not even going to get excited about a solar eclipse. I was more concerned about the *end of the world* rumors that were circulating (I live in the South). I would not have even given that a thought but I had to drive to Florence, AL to deliver a piece of art for a show. 

I stopped for a bite to eat during the *climax* of this event. It was a little dark as I was going into the restaurant…as in “approaching thunderstorm dark, not no sun dark”. People were going outside to take a look. I watched it on TV while I ate. 

As I was getting back into my vehicle to leave I decided to try taking a picture of it…aimed my camera to the sky without using the view finder….  Clouds. I got a great picture of clouds. 

Holiday Shopping

I would like to buy as many gifts 🎁🎁🎁for Christmas 🎄🎄🎄 from my friends as opposed to retail stores. It is easier, more convenient and fosters relationships. So why not? 

Whether it’s makeup👄, handbags👜, jewellery💍, candles🕯, kitchen gadgets🍽, or clothes👗, photography📷, art🖌 why not buy from those we know? Or anything else I’m forgetting!!

 I have a lot of friends who have their own businesses. We all have goals that we are trying to reach… paying off bills… saving up for something special…supporting our families as a full time job… Let’s all help each other out!

Let’s bring our businesses to others!

So,

What do artists do every day? BBC recorded a series of art documentaries devoted to this very subject a few years ago. I have been watching them on YouTube. I would post a link but I am using my tablet, which is a nightmare in itself. That I got this thing for free is the only redeeming quality….that and that I can use it in bed. 

Regret?

Of course you will miss things. There is no point in fretting about choices not taken or the like. Remembering things experienced in a positive light is the experience of a good life.
