At this time, I've decided to move forward, and not look back. When I look back, I get kind of sad. Someone I know on Face Book, posted something this week that caught my eye. It was a simple statement that I like...
"It's okay to look back, just don't stare".
I've had my time to grieve. I could keep going but I'm choosing not to. There will be moments I'm sure, but I have to get back on the train and finish the trip. The day before yesterday was my Birthday, and I took the day off from work. Joe and I traveled around, and played. Shopped and had a picnic. Went out to dinner and visited friends. The day was great, but at the end, the thing I missed most was my Mother making a big deal that I was born. She always worried if I had a cake or not. It was bittersweet missing her at dinner last night.
So....Onward and upward. I've gotten a sign from the Universe that I need to paint again, so tonight I went out and bought new paints and brushes. So, just as soon as I get my studio cleaned up, (imagine three months of shit piled in it), I plan to start painting again! Today was 30% off of everything at Dick Blick, and I did have an unused gift card from last year. Turns out there was $40. on that card...and I spent every last cent!
The other thing that's going on, is a mustache! Yes...a Mustache! Maybe I will start painthing people (maybe famous people, like Edie Beale, Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand) all with mustaches. Why are mustaches so big right now? Anybody know how that all started, because I'd like to know.
Anyway...here is mine. Real, not painted.
Pretty cool, huh?
I do hope to write more often. I just need to do it!
Thanks for stopping by.
