I Shall Call It

I shall call the latest abstract Repricing.

See, when I have things I need to work out and I get frustrated or hit a wall, a creative outlet is necessary for me to process and eventually move forward.

Yesterday was one of those days.

This is nothing spectacular by any means.

It's a previously painted canvas I painted over. Added a few dimensional elements and called it good.

The rhythmic motion of the putting the brush against the canvas and then letting whatever I feel like doing to the base coat calms me.

I may not have figured out everything I need to do but I certainly felt better after I took paint to the brush and the brush to the canvas.

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Summa' Time

We finally had a day with the temps in the 80s.

Today not so much. Today finds us with cloudy skies, some rain showers, and a high possibly in the 70s.

However, the fans are in full effect and it stays light until about 9:10 each day so I'll take that as our version of summer this year.

With that being said, in the summer I take my hair to a lighter hue. I add more highlights and warm tones.

This year is no exception as evidenced by the picture to the left.

It's pretty close to the color I naturally had in Texas during the spring and summer so all is right in the world of my hair these days.

Hope the same is true for you and yours.

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Penchant for Observation

As I took an early lunch break on my first day back to the grind (re:  returning from vacation), I decided to update my Netflix instant queue.

The obvious made itself visible.

I have a penchant for documentaries.

This is nothing new to me.  I have always been intrigued by observation - whether it be people watching, reality tv, or non fiction books. 

I enjoy fiction, drama, and comedies too but I'm drawn to non fiction. 

Human nature, in a word, is intriguing; at least to me it is.  

I appreciate how a non fiction work can broaden my horizons, educate me, open myself up to a whole other world I might not have been exposed to otherwise, stretches my imagination, and reveals possibilities. 

Gee, I wonder why I originally pursued sociology and social work in college. 

So, it makes perfect sense when I look over my instant queue and notice 56% of my selections are documentaries. 

I wonder which one I will watch first. . .

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.
