This season I am trying to loosen up my schedule so that I have more time both to drink in inspiration and to express my artist's heart. I started by going to the AGO and experiencing the Mystical Landscapes exhibit for the second time. I went despite the cats waking us up at 3:00. I went despite going to the gym for 6:30 only to discover it doesn't open until next week. I went despite the rain. And it was wonderful.
You know those resolutions that can come back year after year? One of mine for the past several years is defining words. I haven't stuck to that one in a while (or, ever) but I think I'm going to pick it back up again this year. I was inspired to do this because a book I bought second hand had a bunch of translations in it from the occasional word into French. Now, I don't think I'd be as daring as to mark up an actual book, but I can not them elsewhere... like my composition book! And given one of the words I had was mongoose, I decided to draw some mongooses. And it *is* mongooses (not mongoosi), I know because I looked it up! Woot I feel smarter already.
Time for something silly here! I had gone out yesterday to pick up supplies and today made a Thai coconut soup that was out of this world delicious. I thought this accidental googly eyed Newfie dog was hysterical.
