Saturday Morning

I woke up at 6 AM with a migraine. I really need to get more sleep. I'm going to sit up a few minutes to let my sinuses drain, and then try to go back to sleep. But my daughter has a gig in San Luis Obispo in the morning and if I want a ride to town with her I'll have to get up in an hour anyway. I need a good neck and shoulder massage. I'm going home on Monday so I want to make the most of my weekend here.

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling

Today I grabbed a quick shower because the contractors were coming at 8 AM to work on my daughter's kitchen. She had a burst pipe that pretty much wiped out her kitchen so the insurance helped to buy a complete kitchen makeover. So right now they are doing mud over the drywall they installed a few days ago. Meantime they were already remodeling their bathroom with tiles, so my daughter is working on the bathroom at the same time. As you can imagine it's noisy in here with the hammering, sanding and power tools.

And Then There Was Blogging

I never knew how important all those creative writing classes I took in high school and college would turn out to be. Back in the '70's the idea of blogging wasn't even a twinkle in a computer tech's eyes.

And now it seems I do some creative writing every day, whether in a blog, a long hand journal, an ad brochure, or on The written word can also be incorporated into collage and mixed media art.

Lettering in itself is an artform, and now there are a plethora of fonts to choose from as well as calligraphing your own letters. I think we take letters and words for granted in a ubiquitous sort of a way. But yet many in the world are illiterate and we take our own skills for granted.

So many find that while they can start a blog, they run out of juice after a few posts. It helps to have a topic for your blog. I have over 60 blogs. Feel free to surf some of them via my profile for topic ideas. Life changes moment by moment, so there is always something new to blog about.
