Day 20: ZZZZZZzzzzzz

Sleep is the best meditation.

--Dalai Lama

I hit a major wall, and slept most of the day/night. Perhaps fighting off a cold, or perhaps finally catching up on missed zzzz's from the craziness of last month.  Either way it was a luxuriously lazy day.

A night of sleep is as much preparation for the subsequent day's activity as it is recovery from that of the previous day.

Day 19: Blog Research

Research is the process of going up alleys to see if they are blind. 
--Marston Bates

I spent most of today looking into new blogger templates and learning how to create my own.  No pictures today, because nothing much of interest to report. C'est la vie.

Day !8: Flower Power/Random Day Photos

"Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition." --Max Ernst

"Why not a space flower? Why do we always expect metal ships?"
--W. D. Richter (Screenwriter, Invasion of the Body Snatchers)

Today I added some Lego flowers to the base (and one on the top) of Mr. Robot.  I like the juxtaposition of the "cold" robot "warmly" offering a flower, which is echoed in the "cold" hardware and "warm" Lego flowers.

Now, I just need a final backdrop and he's done. I wish he photographed better and I made my lines cleaner.  Next time :)


P.S. Look at this awesome building I saw tonight.  I love how the stone continues from the outside to the inside.  Tres chic.

P.P.S. Look at my amazing meal that I ate.  Anchor and Hope's Lobster and Crab Gnocchi.  YUM and so pretty.

Day 17: Hardware Hanging

“Life is like a ten speed bicycle. 

Most of us have gears we never use.”

--Charles M. Schulz quotes (American cartoonist, 1922-2000)

Today I bought more shiny parts for Mr. Robot's backdrop and restrung the components with jump rings.  I think it looks much cleaner and more modern, which is exactly what I was going for.  He's coming along! :)

Day 16: Spring Love/Different Perspective

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my 
senses put in order."

-  John Burroughs 

Not only has Spring sprung, but it seems my love has been given new wings. :)

"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. 
Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."
--Marcus Aurelius

Movies are a fun way to see things differently.

Day 15: Doodle Disappointment

An artist can make a mark, a squiggle, anything. Motivation implies movement. 
-Steve Hovland

I got side tracked and didn't set aside proper time and energy to do something satisfyingly creative today  I did, however, do a little doodle.  I guess it's better than nothing.

And then I crawled into bed at my house/dog sitting gig and chilled out. It felt great.

But I can and WILL do better.

Day 14: Photo Ops

A great photograph is a full expression of what 
one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what 
one feels about life in its entirety.
