Dog Days

Where have I been? I do not have a valid answer accept for a busy week and time completely got away from me. First I want to catch up  my journal entries from last year.

  Guardian angel, protect me today,
Watch over me while I work and play.
Let me be kind loving and good,
Help me to do the things I should.

   Reading over these journal entries I sense I was floundering and not focused on one idea but instead I had many thoughts whirling around inside my head. I find this interesting because I have felt the same way this past week. I have not been able to stay with one painting, one drawing ,or one book for any extended period of time. I prepared several journal pages by experimenting with spray paint, stencils and real ivy. I have not progressed any further with these basic designs. I finished reading The Architecture of All abundance by Lenedra Carroll. After this very insightful story/memoir I felt the strong desire to immerse myself in fiction. I have started a wonderful book The Age of Shiva by Manil Suri. The story is set in modern day India and narrated by Meera. The story begins when she is seventeen and begs her father to let her marry Dev and you must read to see where the story wanders from here.
But instead of reading for hours I felt compelled to make this collage. My dogs I guess because of the continuing cold weather have not ventured far from my side this week. I have decided in my next life I would love to be a dog in this house. Maybe there is something to be learned here… it is okay to just let go of all those confusing thoughts and endless household chores. Find a comfy bed, a pile of clean laundry or an empty sofa and take an afternoon nap.
